All programs on TV Africa have been suspended effective Monday, September 3rd. This report, coming from Star FM, claims that the rebranded television station is struggling with its finances and also not able to pay salaries of workers.
The owner of the business has told senior management members that he is unable to pay workers going forward.
"Obuobia Darko-Opoku who was made the General Manager of the company after the departure of popular filmmaker Shirley Frimpong Manso resigned just under a week of accepting the post," Starrfmonline.com reported.
This development has happened just two years ago after a private financial holding company, the Ideal Groupe, acquired a majority share in the TV station after 13 years of operation under the management of Kwaw Ansah.
On the other hand, YEN.com.gh has also learned that Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom’s GN media a subsidiary of his Groupe Nduom, has laid off about 30 workers.
A letter signed by the head of recruitment and selection at the GN media subsidiary thanked workers for their contribution to the company and also further offered them their one month salary in advance.
Also, some persons who have been on their mandatory annual leave have been recalled and also issued with dismissals that have rocked the media company of the founding father of Progressive People’s Party (PPP).
