Sacked and replaced?
Although circumstances surrounding Jackie’s exit from Switch TV are not known, word on the street had it that the actress might be among those let go by the media house.
According to a statement released by Switch TV on January 6, 2019, the organization said it would be making staffing changes in accordance to its 2020 strategy growth that will unfortunately see a number of talents relieved of their duties.
"We will be reviewing the existing programming; cancelling and launching new shows; which may affect some of the existing talent," read part of the email.

“Good morning lovely people it was an honour gracing your screen…Thank you @switchtvke for the platform. To my fans I love you guys and will be gracing the screens soon bigger and better… Tuzidi,” wrote Jackie.
However it was not lot long after announcing her exit from Chatspot, that Jackie was replaced on the show by Nana Owiti; popular musician King Kaka’s wife who was over the moon on her new job.
Taking to Instagram to announce the news, Nana thanked God for the opportunity and promised her fans nothing but the best.
“Guys! It’s 2020 and I’m absorbing all the good vibrations. I’m getting way out of my comfort zone this year so get ready for me. Make a Date with me @switchtvke on #ChatSpot. We Tuning in, Yes? Yay! Thanks! See ya!” wrote Nana.
