A journalist in Embu succumbed to Covid-19 yesterday.

Reuben Githinji, 48, died while undergoing treatment at Murang’a County Hospital where he was transferred after failing to secure an ICU bed at the Embu Level Five Hospital.

He had been taken ill on Sunday last week. He complained of difficulty in breathing and was coughing. Relatives said he was only diagnosed with Covid-19 while in Murang'a hospital.

Journalists in Embu eulogized Githinji as a mentor and a hard-working scribe who was the society's watchdog.
