Trouble ensued for the trio when a video recording of them making insensitive sentiments on the plight of Eunice Wangari Wakimbi, who was pushed off the 12th floor of a building by a man she met on Facebook surfaced online stirring anger among Kenyan netizens and activists.  

In a statement dated March 27, Radio Africa stated that the decision was reached after a comprehensive review of the comments made on the station’s Thursday morning show, adding that the topic in discussion was neither approved nor authorized by the management.

According to the statement, the company had established that the conduct of the three constituted gross misconduct leading to a breach of the company’s editorial policy.
