Robin Njogu's Death

Her death comes after Kenyans woke up to shocking news on the demise of radio icon and Managing Editor at Radio Citizen, Robin Njogu.

The veteran radio journalist succumbed to Covid-19 at the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi, his family said.

His demise comes as a double tragedy for the family, having lost their mother hours before Njogu's death.

President Uhuru Kenyatta praised Njogu's contribution to radio and mentorship to young journalists.

“Robin was an excellent journalist who mentored many young people in the Fourth Estate. We will forever cherish his skills and expertise in mass media, especially in radio where he has left a huge mark of excellence," the President said.
