"It has become a norm for "media personalities" to misuse the platforms they have for disseminating information taking their viewers and listeners for granted by perpetually promoting hate speech, tribalism and blackmail of individuals and institutions. This has promoted hate, confusion, many times is misleading. Media personalities have become complainants, investigators, prosecutors, judges and prisons.
If you feel offended, agitated and hurt with such utterances by these unprofessional personalities, please sign this petition to have this man Isaac Katende alias Kasuku fired from the Nation Media Group.
Why the petition or what did Kasuku do to warrant this action?Advertisement
Nine months back, Kasuku told the listeners to his talk show to get their recording gadgets so that they record what he was about to say;
"Radio you have more than 5 kids, some of them, you are not the one taking care of them, the music business is growing, you can't keep on dragging people behind."
"You woke up and threw someone's laptop in the water, Radio, who are you? I want you to be hit one day and that head of yours smashed."
"And the problem I have with you, you went to school, but you did a hopeless course and these courses should be scrapped."
"Which interesting songs do you have? AND it is that same mentality that led Jeff Kiwa to sue you, Radio, you need to style up."
"If you have gone for BET awards and MTV, how are you going to inspire the upcoming talent?"
