KOT react to Miss Mandi ‘apology’
Kenyans on Twitter appear unmoved by a public apology from former radio presenter Mandi Sarri Waki, alias Miss Mandi.
The former Capital FM radio host gave her side of the story in a social media tiff involving a colleague who claims she harrased him during their stint at the media house.
But a section of Kenyans say she appeared to justify herself more than saying sorry.
Here are some of the responses.

The missing words are:
I admit I hurt you.
I am truly sorry.
Please forgive me.

Dj Joe Mfalme and Shaffie were never given an opportunity to respond. Sponsors at the slightest opportunity distanced themselves. @CapitalFMKenya this is some BS apology. Women empowerment/Feminism is all about bringing down the man!! https://t.co/fP4MLNndku

If we can learn something from this Rashford-esque essay is:
-how to blame your "trauma"
-how to center yourself as the aggressor
-how to gaslight victims
-how to not apologize while pretending to do it
-how to pretend to have grown then show us how you haven't https://t.co/nF5Kn7jEAk

Typical narcissistic they blame the victims for what they did to them. They never take accountability and all they do is gaslight you https://t.co/Cd9Bdn3qq4

Accountability, Miss Mandi, includes but isn't limited to:
– taking full responsibility for your actions.
– atoning for your errors.
– seeking forgiveness from those you've hurt.
Not this white noise. https://t.co/wwioAQJFnT

This apology is a rehash of the Queen's response to Meghan's accusations. What Mandi is saying is OUR RECOLLECTIONS MAY VARY… https://t.co/JrejPDAqiN

Summary: y'all are tripping, it wasn't even that bad. I'd remember if it was, but since y'all want to be such cry babies, I guess I'm sorry. Now shut up about it already https://t.co/Z33QTy4ReL

Miss Mandi had been called out for bullying and terrorising her colleague who had reposted on her accountability post.
Just sitting here watching the person who constantly terrorized & brutally bullied me the entire time we worked together talk about accountability. https://t.co/WO0mplg6UQ

This resulted to some other female media personalities, including Amina Rabar, also ‘exposed’ for suspected bullying.
