Seasoned media personality cum news anchor Betty Kyalo and veteran comedian Eric Omondi have finally found a shigh of relief following their vindication after allegations of a con game.
This follows a statement release by the director of their show Patrick Ojil earlier today Sunday 30 May 2021, confirming that the show had been discontinued.
In his statement, the director backed Ericks earlier statement of just being employees exonerating them from any blames.
“The big Quiz Show bears full responsibility for settlement of all winners’ dues and is committed to ensuring all the winners have been paid as per the Betting Control and Licensing Board requirements,” read the statement.
“It should be noted that two hosts for the show Betty and Eric, therefore, bear no responsibility whatsoever to any dues owed to any winner or any other contractor,” mentioned Patrick.
The duo were faulted in their role for hosting their recently hyped Quiz show that aired on standard group owned KTN television barely a month ago.
Following its stoppage, Eric Omondi was forced to give an explanation on the same with technical difficulties faced during airing being the argument.
Asked about the swindling allegations, the funnyman answered by saying “Betty and I are just hosts. Any person who was not paid should approach Big Quiz Limited. We are just employees.”
This forced the company to revert back advising individual participantss who had not received their awards to contact their customer service team.
The show began earlier this year in the month of March 21, with the first season expected to run for 13 weeks with 100 winners every week, with the overall winner to bag up to Ksh1 Million.
This however did not come to pass as the show had an abrupt stop six weeks later raising questions on why amid complains from participants that they had been conned.
