The decision to stay, Mwakideu explained, was arrived at after he had engaged his bosses.

Popular radio presenter Alex Mwakideu has announced his departure from Milele FM.

Earlier, the eloquent presenter shocked his fan base when he announced his decision to move on.

In a short message on his socials, Mwakideu stopped short of announcing the reasons for his departure but thanked the listeners for their continous support.

“It’s been 5 years ndani ya Milele FM. NIME ENJOY! Let me say AHSANTE SANA to you, the Listener, because without you, hakuna radio! You are the reason we do this thing called Radio,” Mwakideu said in an emotional social media post.

He also asked his followers to second guess his next move.

“Thank you all. Page closed. Onto the next one! Guess tunaenda wapi next.”

Mwakideu joined Milele FM in 2018 from Radio Maisha, where he had worked for eight years.

He doubles up as head of Radio at Milele FM.

He boasts relative experience in the media industry with the highlight being his collaboration with Felix Odiwuor aka Jalang’o at Radio Maisha and Milele FM.

Jalang’o is the current Langata lawmaker.

After Jalang’o departure, Mwakideu worked with MCA Tricky as his co-host, and later on Jackline Nyaminde aka Wilbroda.

The radio presenter is a German-trained journalist, courtesy of the famed Deutsche Welle programme, a background that initially landed him a job at Baraka FM in Mombasa, where he worked for almost ten years.
