Famous NTV Journalist Rita Tinina Found Dead At Her Home

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Popular NTV Kenya journalist Rita Tinina is dead. Her 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 couldn’t be reached on 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 the media, “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’s Rita’s 7-year-old baby who notified the house girl that mother was unresponsive according to police. Her body has been taken to Umash Funeral Home this evening at 5pm.

Her employer, the Nation Media Group that owns NTV Kenya with extensions in Uganda with Monitor, NTV Uganda, Spark TV, KFM and other media enterprises in Uganda released a statement few minutes ago about her demise saying Rita was a dedicated and experienced media professional.

Rita Tinina has been in the media for over two decades starting from NTV Kenya before she moved to Standard Group’s KTN. She returned to NTV Kenya last year in October
