Celebrated radio Journalist Shaffie Weru has issued an update on the status of his case with Radio Africa where he is demanding Sh21 million as a send-off package after being sacked. 

In an interview with NTV's trend show, Shaffie Weru revealed that he is negotiating with Radio Africa on how he will be paid. 

He said the court advised them to work on modalities of solving the matter out of court.

"I am still in court. The court had asked us to try and resolve the issues out of court. My lawyer has written to the team. The current General Manage Martin Khafafa is a very dope guy who I worked with for 17 years giving me the opportunity that has made me who I am. They are in conversation. I am just waiting for them to give me a cheque," he said.

Shaffie Weru said once he receives the cash, he will sort out a lot of debts that accrued as a result of being laid off.

He said the sacking affected him so much since there are times he lacked money.
