Long serving KNA journalist dies after battle with cancer

By Irisheel Shanzu | July 19th 2020

The county information officer, John Saina, has died after battling colon cancer.

The veteran journalist, aged 52, died on Friday. He has left behind a widow, four children and two grandchildren.

Journalists and friends in West Pokot and Trans Nzoia counties have eulogised Saina as a down-to-earth man.

West Pokot County Police Commandant Jackson Tumwet, who was his close ally, said he was shocked to lose such a friend.

Joseph Kintu, chairman of the West Pokot Journalists Association said Saina has left behind a big gap in journalism in the county.

He mentored a good number of journalists. “He was our father. My deepest condolences,” he said.
