Celebrated KBC anchor Badi Muhsin is dead

By Betty Njeru | October 9th 2021

Veteran Television anchor Badi Muhsin (pictured) is dead, his family has confirmed.

Muhsin, aged 67, died at a Mombasa Hotel on Friday afternoon at around 4.00 pm.

A relative who spoke to The Standard told us that Muhsin had just finished his Friday prayers, took lunch and returned to his hotel room, where he then complained of feeling unwell.

“He called a friend to say he was unwell. When the friend asked if he could take him [Badi] to the hospital, he declined saying he would be okay,” Nassor told The standard via telephone.

Shortly after, his friend returned to the room to find Badi fast asleep. It was later established that he had died.

Muhsin is famed for his Kiswahili show on Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) ‘Dira ya Dunia.’

His mastery of the Swahili language earned him thousands of fans both locally and globally.

Until his death, Muhsin was one of Kenya’s longest serving Kiswahili news anchors, having worked for over 30 years.

He had recently been recalled from retirement by KBC to co-host another show.

Tributes poured on social media after news of his demise.
