Capital FM on Tuesday reacted to Producer, Joe Muchiri’s ‘inappropriate jokes’ made on social media.

Muchiri is what many would refer to as a social media bigwig. He over the weekend said that a woman should be ‘raped with a cactus’ because she declined voting for rapper, Nyashinki who has been nominated for the MTV EMAs.

Capital FM has reiterated that they do not support Joe’s behaviour and action will be taken against him.

”We would like to make it abundantly clear that we do not support or condone gender based violence or any form of violence. We are therefore dealing with the matter with the seriousness it deserves,” read Capital FM’s statement.

Obadiah Ogeto, a Youth Fund employee was on September 15, fired for making fun of sexual assault victims or survivors by calling them names. In one tweet, Ogeto referred to them as ‘donkeys.’

According to his boss, Ronald Osumba, he was ‘fired, not because he is a sex offender but because of his attitude and jocular handling of the sensitive issue. The institution is not tolerant to such.’
