Through their Mediamax acting CEO Ken Ngaruiya, the slashing of salaries was decided after a meeting by the top leadership.

On receiving formal letters on Tuesday, April 21, however, Mediamax employees went on a strike, lamenting that the letters did not document the period within which, they would get their salaries slashed.

"Everybody is condemning the letter and have, hence, gone on a go-slow because the letter does not substantiate after how long their salaries will be slashed. As of today, the employees have started receiving their letters," one reporter said who sought anonymity.

"Employees are looking forward to a court injunction at the moment. Until then, when they know the real fate, they will be on a go-slow," another employee said.
