“Beginning Thursday, March 26, EABL paused all forms of advertising on all programmes related to these presenters. As a precondition to revert to our advertising partners, we have asked RAG to conduct due diligence in the selection of presenters and embed a robust consequence management plan on those that do not abide by the code of conduct, ” EABL said in a statement .

The trio found themselves in trouble when a video of them making  insensitive sentiments on the plight of a lady identified as Eunice Wangari who was pushed from the 12th floor of a building by a man she met on social media went viral.
