Homeboyz Radio fires breakfast show trio over slur against women

Homeboyz Radio and its parent company, Radio Africa, have terminated the service of Shaffie Weru, Joseph Munoru (DJ Mfalme) and Neville Muysa with immediate effect. 

The termination follows a comprehensive review of the comments made on the station on Thursday morning and their subsequent suspension from employment, the company said in a statement released on social media and the press.

“Our partners and listeners will not be surprised by this action to terminate their services as it is the right thing to do,” Homeboyz Radio General Manager Somoina Kimonjino said in a statement on Saturday evening.

She added; “The comments of said erstwhile employees were neither authorized, approved nor cleared with the company nor was the subject discussed and or authorized by the company‚Äôs senior leadership. We are deeply disappointed in their conduct.”

On Friday, the three were suspended for two weeks in relation to comments they made that appeared to victim shame and justify sexual assault against women.

However, some netizens have sided with the staff claiming their comments, were taken out of context and were meant to guide women not in the context that led to their firing. What do you think?
