Peter Opondo Fired From KTN


In a WhatsApp message, Opondo informed his colleagues that his contract had been terminated and his stint at the media house brought to an end over what was described as an “unsatisfactory performance”. 

Standard Media Group’s Strategy and Content Editor Peter Opondo was fired on Friday, July 16.

In a WhatsApp message, Opondo informed his colleagues that his contract had been terminated and his stint at the media house brought to an end over what was described as an “unsatisfactory performance”. 

“Some personal news. My short stint with Standard Media Group has come to an end today. The company has terminated my contract effective immediately,” Opondo stated.

He added that he did not agree with the conclusion the company reached but nonetheless accepted their final decision.

“Sometimes we don’t always see things the same way and some things are just meant to be. So I wish all of you well as you continue with the transformation journey,” he added.

According to sources who told Viral Tea, Opondo was allegedly linked closely to Deputy President William Ruto and was in charge of preparing his interviews at KTN News, a matter which did not sit well with the management.

Opondo’s career has seen him navigate all media houses in Kenya, the latest being Standard Media Group, a media house he joined in February 2021. He was in charge of editorial content in all the Standard Media Group‘s broadcasts divisions.

Opondo had previously worked for Mediamax Network Limited as the Head of TV and Digital. He resined and what followed was an exercise where 90% of the entire K24 newsroom team were sent home after they opposed a 50 percent pay cut.

Opondo also worked at the Royal Media Services (RMS) as the Editorial Director. He has over 18 years of experience in broadcast, print, and digital media.
