darweshThe media fraternity has been left in mourning following the passing of Swahili news anchor Ahmed Darwesh.

Darwesh succumbed to diabetes at Mater hospital last evening. It was quite unexpected considering he anchored Sunday’s news. However yesterday, his condition became bad and he did not leave his South C home. He was rushed to Mater after being found very sick, and was soon pronounced dead.

Darwesh has been at KTN for many years and has mentored many big names in the media today, among them Larry Madowo who led the tributes.

Here’s how Twitter mourned him.
