Former NTV News Anchor Winnie Mukami has passed on.
Reports indicate that Mukami who recently served as a board member at Kenya Pipeline Company succumbed to Covid-19 at a Nairobi hospital.
The media personality was the founder and Director at Winners Frontiers International Ltd, a P.R Consultancy firm.
Mukami exited the media industry back in June 2018 after being appointed to the Kenya Pipeline Company Board for a period of three years.
Before the appointment, Mukami had worked for Nation Media Group (NTV) for seven years. Prior to that, she also worked as a current affairs reporter at KBC TV and Radio Taifa.
In 2010 Mukami left NTV after seven years and founded her public relations consultancy known as Winners Frontiers International Limited.
In 2018, she was appointed to the board of Kenya Pipeline Company for three years.
“Having worked in Broadcast Industry for over eight years, I bring valuable experience acquired from the industry to our various Clients at Winners Frontiers,” part of her Linked-in account read.
Her demise comes two days after Royal Media Services journalist Robin Njogu also succumbed to the disease while being treated at the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi.
Friends and former colleagues in the media eulogized her as gentle and hard-working.
