The fall from the 12th to 9th floor had Eunice spend two months at the Kenyatta National Hospital after suffering serious pelvic injuries.

In their statements this morning, Shaffie and Dj Joe apologized to Eunice for uttering words that may have caused her harm.

“I realize and accept that my statements about the unfortunate incident that happened to Eunice were very insensitive and hurtful and could be interpreted by some as encouraging the already ongoing and unacceptable culture of violence against women and girls.

“I do not, have not and will never condone any form of violence against women and I will do my part to help put an end to it,” read their statements in part.
