Homeboyz presenter Max Nyatome commonly known as Didge angered majority of Kenyans on Tuesday night following his comments on slain University student Ivy Wangechi.
On Tuesday night, the ‘Mtaani’ show presenter poked fun about the gruesome murder of the sixth-year medical student at Moi University School of Medicine saying she died because she wasn’t loyal.
Wangeci was allegedly killed by Naftali Njahi Kinuthia who hit her with an axe before he slit her throat.
Didge has offered an apology following his comments on the show saying that he deeply regrets his words.
“It is with a sincere heart that I apologise to anyone who was offended by the remarks made on our show Mtaani yesterday (Tuesday the 9th of March) past 10 pm.
After careful revision of the said show, we made some remarks that were provocative and seemingly tasteless on a very sensitive subject matter, having said that, I am also deeply sorry to anyone who might have been hurt by these comments.
As one of the lead presenters of the Mtaani show, I take full responsibility and I’m totally remorseful for the specific statements. I would also like to apologise to our colleagues and the @homeboyzkenya (HBR) station as a whole.
We as MTAANI apologise to our fans as well and the immediate public on this issue. We are definitely taking steps to make sure we improve on the quality of our content.”
The comments also come after HBR Radio suspended him following his statements on air. Here’s the official letter.
