CNN eulogises former Kenyan reporter Soni Methu
American broadcaster CNN has sent out condolences to the family of their former Kenyan reporter Soni Methu.
In a statement, the cable network said Methu was the first Kenyan host of the ‘Inside Africa’ show that later changed format to do away with presenters.
“We are shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of our friend and former colleague Soni Methu. Our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends, from all at CNN,” read the statement.
Methu’s cause of death still remains unknown with her family still awaiting post-mortem examination.
Her younger sister, in a statement, had explained how Methu clutched her stomach and cried in pain at about 6pm Thursday then died 30 minutes later on her way to the hospital.
Methu joined CNN in 2014 and left early 2016 when the show format changed.
She joined China Global Television Network (CGTN) until recently when she ceased working for the network.
