Amina Abdi and Miss Mandi Issue Public Apologies After Toxicity Debacle

It has been an overwhelming weekend for media queens Amina Abdi and Miss Mandi after their names were dragged by Kenyans over claims of purporting and spreading toxicity in their respective work places.

It all started when a former colleague of Mandi’s Koome Gitobu took to social media to call her out for being fake online whereas she terrorized him when they worked together at One FM.

“Just sitting here watching the person who constantly terrorized and brutally bullied me the entire time we worked together talk about accountability, This woman Would constantly call the entire office to a stop to make fun of my clothes when I didn’t have enough money to buy the trendy shit she and her friends thought only those deserving to be in their presence to wear.

“This woman. Made up such hurtful nicknames for me behind my back. And laugh in my face because I couldn’t afford to order fancy food for lunch so I would cook my own food and carry. This woman. Felt because I didn’t have an accent as well-polished as hers I, therefore, was not deserving to be a radio presenter like her. And would happily remind me whenever I crossed her (which only happened when I breathed near her),” Koome posted.

After a weekend of KOT trolling Miss Mandi, she took to her socials to issue her public apology.

“I can also see how those experiences contribute to the overall ‘mean girl’ culture that is perceived to be a part of the media industry here in Kenya. I do not wish to contribute to that culture and I mean that sincerely. To all those that have recounted particular negative experiences that involved me, please know that while my intentions were never to cause you harm and what I can now see was deep trauma, I acknowledge that my words and actions could have caused them. For that, I apologize. I feel terrible that some of my actions could have caused those who have interacted with me such distress because that is not who I am now, or what I stand for. But more importantly, this incident has highlighted how important it is for all of us to have healthy and just avenues to resolve workplace conflict.” she wrote.

In the same breath, Amina’s name came up multiple times among netizens who complained that she propels the toxic work place culture as well.

During her show ‘The Trend’ on NTV, Amina took time to apologize to her fans and whoever she had offended in the past.

“My name being dragged into it was quite unfortunate and if there is anyone out there who I have ever encountered who felt like I was mean and I didn’t give them the kind of reception they had expected, I apologize for that. If there is anyone who I’ve ever given the kind of reception they didn’t expect, I apologise but am not toxic,” she said.
