Popular radio host and comedian Jalang’o has rubbed feminists the wrong way after his comments after the death of student Ivy Wangeci.
Here is what he said in the deleted post
His former colleague Adelle Onyango termed his latest statements as ignorant and reckless. She said that women were not a commodity for exchange for men’s pleasure.
Adelle said that Jalang’o should use his following and status to root out men with criminal behavior by asking them to be accountable for each other.
“This is quite ignorant and reckless. So we must adjust to tolerate murderers? Women have been murdered because of saying NO (something they have the right to say at any moment) and you say this? 37 women since January killed – FEMICIDE and you say this. It’s exhausting – constantly being told to keep safe because men have decided to be killers! Every woman will tell you how they have to adjust every day actions just so that they don’t suffer the aggression of men. There is no difference between your train of thought and those that justify rape because they bought drinks. (They too claim drinks to be an “investment”) Don’t teach us how to avoid getting killed – tell them not to kill us, attack us, rape us” Adelle Onyango posted.
The comedian also received backlash on twitter over his post.
Here are some of the reactions posted on Twitter:

Jalango can say that men's money is not free and blame women for being hurt for wanting money but what he'll never tell you is that we live in a world that pays men what they don't deserve and refuses to pay women even what's rightfully theirs.

The statement comes days after radio host Didge was forced to swallow a humble pie after stating that the student deserved to die. His show Mtaani was pulled down from Homeboyz radio indefinitely.
