The management of the African Independent Television, AIT, has fired at least 300 of its staff.
Reports say the sack took place today and its believed to have been directed by its owner Raymond Dokpesi who allegedly signed the letters for the disengaged staff.
The exercise was said to have been done to allow a repositioning of the media organization. AIT, which is part of the DAARS Communications Limited, owes backlog of staff salaries which some put at between five to 13 months.
This comes barely 24-hours after The Sun newspapers purged several of its staff, including senior editorial members.
