  • Capital FM presenter Amina Abdi Rabar exited the station a week ago, Kenyans.co.ke has confirmed.

    Insiders at the radio station disclosed that the media personality had tendered her resignation a month ago before she finally left last week.

    Her co-host, Fareed Khimani, announced during his Capital in the Morning show that Amina had left the station.

    “Amina Abdi will not be returning and I will be joined soon by a new co-host. She has gone to do big and better things,” Khimani announced.

    Kenyans.co.ke has learned that Amina left for a couple of reasons, the major one being the extension of salary cuts for another three months. The renowned personality also reportedly wanted more time to take care of her son.

    "The program controller tried to reshuffle the presenters by moving Amina to the evening show, but it only brought more issues," a source stated.

    The multi-talented presenter is yet to announce her departure or the new opportunities she will be pursuing.

    Reports from the station also indicated that Neville and Mandi, the Hits not home presenters, have also tendered their notice of resignation.

    Recently, Capital FM has had some of their best presenters leaving the station, either after resigning or getting fired.

    Just last month, Miano Muchiri, a presenter at the station quit after a decade in the station.

    “The time has come to say goodbye to radio. I would love it if you tuned in tomorrow one last time from 10:00-14:00,” Muchiri told his fans before exiting.

    In 2019, Anita Nderu resigned to pursue new challenges.

    Other presenters who have also left the station since 2018 include; Laura Walubengo, Maqbul Mohammed, Cess Mutungi and  Sharon Mundia.
