Veteran journalist Joshua Arap Sang has been appointed in acting capacity as Deputy Group Head of Radio, Mediamax Limited.
Sang who recently joined MediaMax-owned Emoo FM will take over following resignation of head of radio department Joyce Gituro.
In a statement by Emoo FM seen by North Rift Mirror, Sang will now take over the day to day management of all Mediamax Limited Radio stations.
”Emoo FM family takes this opportunity to congratulate our Head of Radio Joshua Arap Sang for his appointment in acting capacity as Deputy Group Head of Radio, Mediamax Limited.” posted Emoo FM in their official Facebook page.
As Deputy group head of Radio, Sang will oversee the operations of Emoo FM, Milele FM, Kameme FM, Maiyan FM, Meru FM and Msenangu FM.
Arap Sang made his name on radio during a stint at Kass FM between 2005 and 2007.
His fortunes took a dramatic twist when he was hauled before the Hague-based International Criminal Court and charged with crimes against humanity.
He was acquitted on due to lack of sufficient evidence.
After the Hague, Sang returned to his Seum rural village in Cherangany constituency where he ventured in Agriculture and put in to practice what he learned in the Netherlands about dairy farming.
In 2017 Sang made an unsuccessful stab at politics when he vied for Trans Nzoia gubernatorial seat but lost in the Jubilee party primaries.
In April the 44-year-old journalist was appointed Head of Emoo FM after a 7-year hiatus.
