Former CNN journalist Soni Methu has passed on on Thursday evening in Kwale County as revealed by her sister Faith Methu.
The former CNN journalist is said to have collapsed at around 6:30 in the evening before passing on.
Before her demise, Soni Methu is said to have cried due to sharp pain, clutched at her stomach before she collapsed.
Efforts by her sister-in-law to rush her to the hospital failed as she died on her way. A postmortem is scheduled to be done to determine the cause of her death.
Soni Methu worked for CNN until 2016 before moving to CGTN Africa with offices in Nairobi. She was an alumnus of Strathmore University and kick-started her career at Kenya Broadcasting Company (KBC).
