Jeff Dennis Khaemba, a producer for K24 Political Affairs, has died.
His colleagues verified his death, revealing that the scribe was brought to Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) on Tuesday morning after being discharged from the same facility on Sunday.
Khaemba, who had been struggling with health concerns for some time, had a spike in his sugar levels at home, prompting his family to rush him to a local clinic.
Unfortunately, his condition worsened and he was transferred to KNH for treatment.
He died on Tuesday morning.
His colleagues described Khaemba as a journalist who was dedicated to his craft.
“A good man has rested Jeff Dennis Khaemba, the Political Affairs Producer at K24TV. Fare thee well bro till we meet again,” Hilary Mageka, the Parliamentary and Political Reporter at People Daily, posted on Facebook.
Nominated Senator Esther Okenyuri also mourned the journalist, crediting her first television appearance after joining the Senate to Khaemba.
“Saddened to learn about the sudden demise of Jeff Dennis Khaemba, a Political Affairs Producer at K24TV,” she noted.
“I extend my heartfelt condolences at this difficult time. He organized my very first K24 Television appearance just after I had joined the Senate and other morning shows thereafter.”
Khaemba was a political affairs producer at K24, a position he had held for one year and eight months.
According to his LinkedIn profile, he has worked in various media houses, gaining experience in various media fields.
In August 2012, he joined Radio Mambo as a field reporter before proceeding to Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) FM as Head of News in May 2014.
Khaemba later joined Ebru TV as a reporter in January 2022, where he honed his craft in field reporting. Months later, he joined Mediamax Network as a political affairs producer.
