Former KTN presenter Robert Soi is dead.
Soi was a Sports anchor with the Standard Media Group-owned TV station in the early 2000s.
Sources close to Kahawa Tungu intimated that Soi passed on today after a long illness. He died at a Nairobi hospital.
“They did surgery but he did not make it (sic),” the source said.

The two met at KTN where Catherine worked as a reporter.
Some of Soi’s former colleagues have taken to social media to condole with his family.
