Former Nation Media house photojournalist who was also part of Raila Odinga’s press unit in ODM has died.
Ann Kamoni died on Sunday evening at Coptic Hospital in Nairobi,
“Sad story for Ann Kamoni, once an innocent, loving, kind-hearted, beautiful, hard-working young gal before she started clubbing,” read a tribute message from her fellow journalist in one of the media Whatsapp groups.
Other tributes were from Minority Chief Whip Junet Mohamed, who posted on his social media.
“Her name, like many of her kind, only appeared on papers as a credit on a photo. I met her fighting addiction. She once broke down at Orange House. She had waned, and it showed. That she fought till now only showed her dogged determination, to win. Sad she lost,” he said.
“Dennis Onyango, who had brought her to work briefly for Raila Odinga as a photographer, and from where I got acquainted to her, tells me she leaves behind a daughter. Ann Kamoni is a good soul. I wish her rest,” he added.
ODM’s Director of Communications Philip Etale also confirmed the death on his Twitter handle on Monday morning. He did not give more details.
“May you rest in the arms of the Lord who formed you from the dust of the earth. My friend Ann Kamoni, may Christ who died for you admit you into His garden of paradise,” he said.
Here is communication from her colleagues as they organise her burial.
