Friday, April 12, 2019- The Kenyan media fraternity has been rocked by the sudden death of former CNN reporter, Soni Methu.
The bubbly journalist died on Thursday evening on her way to hospital after sudden illness.
The former ‘Inside Africa’ show presenter complained of sharp pain in her stomach and then collapsed according to her younger sister, Faith.
“She started looking like she was having a seizure and my sister-in-law rushed her to the hospital but she died on the way. We don’t know much but a postmortem will be done to tell exactly what happened,” wrote Faith.

Woke up this morning wishing the news we received yesterday wasn’t true. The continent’s lost one of its greatest storytellers and warmest hearts: Soni Methu. From @eNCA to @CNN and @cgtnafrica she covered people’s stories with compassion and undying optimism. Rest in Power ✊🏾 pic.twitter.com/LzvTdEBGQp— Vauldi Carelse (@vauldicarelse) April 12, 2019
