Kenyans on social media are outraged by Capital FM’s decision to hand Anita Nderu the job of hosting of the station’s popular evening show Hits not Homework.

This after it emerged that a talent search meant to unveil the new host of show, following the departure of former host Amina Abdi, would count for nothing after all.

The radio station in September 2017 launched the talent search that was supposed to culminate in the announcement of the new host.

The ideal candidate for the job was supposed to be between the age of 19 and 25 years, with no prior experience, ‘just be dope’, the station had announced.
