Kenyan radio station Classic 105 was on Wednesday slammed by Kenyans online over a discussion most deemed as insensitive and offensive.

The radio station’s morning show hosts – Maina Kageni and Churchill alias Mwalimu King’ang’i – were engaging with their listeners on the recent rise in femicide cases in the country.

The station’s social media handlers then took to their online accounts to pose a question to their fans and followers in anticipation for more feedback.

“Guys, What’s the worst thing a woman could do to make you end her life,” read the post.

This, however, rubbed many online users the wrong way with many interpreting it as the station allegedly justifying actions by men to kill women; especially coming on the backdrop of the much publicised incident where Moi University student Ivy Wangeci was hacked to death by Naftali Njahi Kinuthia.

Kenyans took to Twitter to express their anger at the radio station which has since deleted the social media posts.
