After a lengthy battle with cancer, veteran TV news presenter Catherine Kasavuli passed away at the age of 60 in the Kenyatta National Hospital. The journalist’s passing was verified by KBC Managing Director Samuel Maina this morning, who claimed that she passed away yesterday night. According to a story by the Daily Nation, Maina claimed that she lost the battle with cervical cancer the night of December 29 and passed away.
After a long and successful career in the media as a news anchor, the iconic media personality decided to hang up her boots in 2013.
However, she made a comeback to television last year when she joined KBC as a prime-time anchor. She regretfully left KBC in November 2022 after announcing she was battling cervical cancer. After the announcement, in which the attractive anchor also requested blood donations and assistance with medical expenditures, there was an outpouring of love and support for her.
