Veteran Kenyan radio journalist Mohammed Juma Njuguna has passed on.
Juma died on Saturday morning while receiving treatment at Nairobi Hospital. He had been battling illness for long.
Until his death, the football commentator was working as a content producer at Royal Media Services' Radio Citizen.
Royal Media Services poached Juma from Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) in 1999.
He also worked for BBC Swahili Service for a period of three years.
In 2010, retired President Mwai Kibaki awarded the radio host with a Head of State Commendation for his illustrious career in media that spans more than four decades.
"Our paths crossed on so many occasions. A friend. A mentor. Veteran Radio Presenter and football commentator Mohammed Juma Njuguna has died. Rest in peace, my friend." Sports journalist Carol Radull tweeted.
"My mentor, my friend, my teacher... I am lost for words. RIP Mohammed Juma Njuguna wa Idhaa," ODM Communications Director Philip Etale said on Twitter.
He will be buried at Kariokor Muslim Cemetery at 4 pm on Saturday as per Islam traditions.
