Shaffie Weru and DJ Joe Mfalme were on Friday forced to rush and save their radio jobs.

The duo's jobs became under threat after they went on air to victim shame a 20-year-old woman who was thrown off the 12th floor of Ambank House by a man she met on Facebook.

The two made their statement on Wednesday, 24 March while speaking at a breakfast show on Radio HomeBoyz.

Following their action, Kenyans took to Twitter to blast the duo accusing them of being insensitive and encouraging sexual abuse among women.

Bowing to the guns of Kenyans, the two media personalities took to social media to post their written apology to Kenyans and the woman they victimized.

In his apology, Shaffie noted that he had realized that statement he made was insensitive and hurtful to one Eunice - the woman thrown out of the window.

"I realize and accept that my statement about the unfortunate incident that happened to Eunice was very insensitive and hurtful and could be interpreted by some as encouraging the already ongoing and unacceptable culture of violence against women and girls," Shaffie wrote.

Shaffie further noted that she is a loving father of his daughter and could not in any way encourage violence towards women.

On his part, DJ Joe Mfalme who also noted that he regretted his statement, expressed his apology to Eunice her family, and anyone else he might have hurt with his statement.

"I do not, have not, and will never condone any form of violence against women and will do my part to help put an end to it."

On its part, Homeboyz Radio said noted that did not advocate for "any form of violence towards any gender"
