Former KTN presenter Robert Soi is dead.

Soi was a Sports anchor and editor with the Standard Media Group-owned TV station in the early 2000s before moving to China Global Television Network (CGTN).

Sources close to Kahawa Tungu intimated that Soi passed away at the Nairobi Hospital on Wednesday, May 26 after a long illness.

He had spent one week in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

Soi was reportedly involved in an accident months ago and sustained serious head injuries.

After receiving treatment, he later developed a blood clot in his head, prompting his admission at the Nairobi Hospital on May 20.
