NAIROBI, Kenya Mar 17 – Popular NTV Journalist Rita Tinina is dead.

Rita’s body was discovered in her house in Kileleshwa on Sunday afternoon but there was no immediate confirmation on the cause of her death.

Her colleagues at NTV said she was scheduled to be on duty on Sunday but failed to show up, and she could not be reached on the phone.

“It is unusual that she is not at work and no one knows her whereabouts that is what prompted the search that led to the discovery,” one of her colleagues told Capital FM News, “unfortunately she was found dead in her house.”

Police said her house girl got concerned when she failed to wake up at 10am and called some of her friends.

It is Rita’s 7-year-old baby who notified the house girl that her mother was unresponsive, according to police.

Her body was taken to Umash Funeral Home at 5pm.

Her employer, the Nation Media Group that owns NTV, had not released a statement on the death by the time of this publication.

She has been in the media for over two decades starting from NTV before she moved to KTN.

She made a comeback to NTV in October last year.
