Ex-Nation FM presenter Lands International Radio Job 5 Years After Ditching Nation FM

Former Nation FM presenter Angela Angwenyi has landed a new radio job in West African nation, Sierra Leone roughly five years after she announced her retirement to run a Public Relations and Communications firm.

The presenter in a posts she shared on facebook on Monday, June 29,announced that she had landed a job with AYV Radio where she will co-host a breakfast show dubbed ‘Big Breakfast Alone’ show.

she wrote in one post.

“Starting this Monday June 29th only on AYV radio 101.6fm.”

In another post on Monday, she mentioned that it was her first day back on air after five years, as she asked her fans to wish her luck, in the new job.

“So it’s raining cats and dogs outside …First day back on air after 5yrs of being off radio, nerves galore…..Wish me luck 😊 Tune into 101.6fm AYV #SierraLeone let’s do this!” Angela

Angela was a presenter at Radio Africa Group’s Kiss 100 Before joining Nation FM.Angwenyi quit her popular State of the Nation show at Nation FM in 2015 after 10 years in the media industry.

At the time of her departure, the presenter had been linked to the infamous NYS scandal in which a company, Out of the Box Solutions Limited, linked to her had been accused of receiving up to Ksh302 million.

The payment was apparently made to the firm as a consultancy fee to publicise tenders for the youth as well as women.

Her troubles continued a few years later when her house got put up for auction after she ran into financial woes.

The National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) had stopped payments to Out of the Box Solutions owned by Angwenyi and Antony Lungaho after both parties had been paid Ksh90.7 million.

The house located at Jacaranda Gardens Estate in Nairobi was set to be auctioned by Garam Auctioneers that placed an announcement on a local daily in 2019.

Prior to this, her bank account had been among 14 that were frozen in 2018 as investigations into the scandal went on in 2018.
