Kilifi-based KTN journalist Joseph Masha is dead. The journalist died on Saturday morning at his Kiwandani home in Kilifi.
Masha is said to have collapsed in his home after answering to a call of nature on Saturday afternoon. A day earlier, Masha is said to have been in a jovial mood and even covered President Uhuru Kenyatta’s visit at Kilifi town.
“We were together on Friday morning when we covered the Governor at Kilifi hospital before embarking on the president’s tour,”
Samuel Kazungu, a reporter with the Daily Nation revealed.
Kazungu further revealed that they were to return to cover another event but Masha was unable to do so due to a stomach upset. Family members said Masha had not been unwell and only complained of the stomach ache when he returned from work on Friday.
His body was taken to the Kilifi county hospital mortuary pending postmortem. Masha is survived by a wife and five children. He joined the media industry in the early 1990s where he started working with the Ministry of Information in Lamu and Kilifi before joining the Standard Media Group.
