Popular  comedian Felix Oduor, alias Jalang’o,will be President Uhuru Kenyatta‘s new employee after his media company, Mediamax Network, managed to secure his services after tabling a lucrative deal.

Sources privy to the details have indicated that he will be joining Milele FM.

Barely a year ago, the comical radio presenter left Standard Media Group’s Radio Maisha in a decision that did not augur well with his largely Swahili listener fanbase.

He leaves the Hot 96 breakfast program which was quite popular and had an impressive online trail under the hashtag #jeffandjalasonhot96.

Jalango will be taking over from fellow Radio Comedian Cleophas Awinja ,aka Captain Otoyo,who left Milele FM in April for Radio Maisha.

Jalas made his debut in radio at Kiss 100 before shifting to Radio Maisha where he worked for more than five years.

He will be reuniting with former Head of CitizenRadio Joyce Gituro, comedian Wilbroda and Citizen radio presenter Francis Luchivya,who were also poached by Milele FM.

Royal Media Services(RMS) insider and veteran journalist Peter Opondo, who moved to Mediamax in April this year in the capacity of executive editor, is rumored to be the one behind the massive exodus.
