The Kenya media fraternity woke up to sad news on Thursday morning of the demise of Winnie Mukami.

Mukami was a renowned, top NTV News anchor.

Mukami died on Thursday morning after suffering Covid-19 complications.

She was admitted at a Nairobi hospital on Friday, according to her family.

Mukami came to the limelight in 2003 when she first anchored the NTV tonight bulletin during its launch.

She worked for the Agha Khan owned television channel for seven years before she left in 2010.

She also served as the Kenya Pipeline Corporation (KPC) board member.

Until her death, Mukami was an established businesswoman.

She joined Nation Media Group (NMG) after working with The Kenya Broadcasting Corporation, KBC TV and radio where she was the current affairs presenter and producer.

She anchored NTV tonight alongside another male talent Basset Buyuka.

Her demise comes barely two days after the death of Royal Media Services Managing Editor Robinson Njogu.

Njogu died at the Agha Khan hospital after battling Covid-19 complications for three weeks.

The Media Council of Kenya (MCK) issued an alert to its members to exercise caution even as when they conduct their daily field assignments.
