Push came to shove earlier this week when the former Hits Not Homework presenter tweeted that people should be accountable for their deeds. In a reply, Koome Gitobu, a former intern where Miss Mandi worked, rubbished the tweet insisting that she was a hypocrite who made her life at Capital Fm miserable.
Her Twitter account has been dormant for the better part of this week with the reply button in tweets generated by her remaining muted.
A section of Kenyans on Twitter utilized that opportunity to expose other toxic female media personalities that were hiding behind brands. Among those mentioned are NTV’s Amina Abdi, former Hot 96 Mid-Morning presenter Anita Ray, and ex-capital Fm’S Anita Nderu.
Amina apologized on the Trend show yesterday over her behavior insisting that at times, she was mean and didn’t give people the kind of reception they had expected.
