Legendary KBC radio presenter dies

Close to a week after Janet Kanini passed away we have now lost another media bigwig.

KBC

The 65-year-old media guru died while waiting at the hospital for treatment after being diagnosed with a perforated gut at Mariakani hospital.

Mr Fondo was known for the ‘Chaguo Lako’ programme on Voice of Kenya and later ‘Salaam za Adhuhuri’ on KBC, where he was credited for promoting local music including the legendary Simba Wa Nyika’s .

Speaking to The Star, former colleague Kazungu Katana spoke highly of Fondo's character.

“Fondo was a very reserved person who kept to himself most of the time. He was loved by many musicians and promoted local bands. He is the person who made Simba wa Nyika very popular and used to play the song, Pamela. He used to call himself MDJ (Music DJ) Fondo. He was an expert in radio continuity and I used to host him with Khadija Ali." He fondly remembered Fondo.
