K24 political Affairs producer Jeff Dennis Khaemba has died.

Khaemba's death was confirmed by his colleagues who revealed that the scribe was rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) on Tuesday morning after being discharged from the same facility on Sunday.

Khaemba, who had been suffering from health issues for some time, experienced a spike in his sugar levels at home, leading his family to swiftly take him to a nearby clinic. 

Unfortunately, his condition deteriorated, requiring his transfer to KNH for treatment. 

Tragically, he passed away on Tuesday morning.

"A good man has rested Jeff Dennis Khaemba, the Political Affairs Producer at K24TV. Fare thee well bro till we meet again," Hilary Mageka, the Parliamentary and Political Reporter at People Daily, posted on Facebook.

Nominated Senator Esther Okenyuri also mourned the journalist, crediting her first television appearance after joining the Senate to Khaemba.

"Saddened to learn about the sudden demise of Jeff Dennis Khaemba, a Political Affairs Producer at K24TV," she noted.

According to his LinkedIn profile, he has worked in various media houses, gaining experience in various media fields.

In August 2012, he joined Radio Mambo as a field reporter before proceeding to Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) FM as Head of News in May 2014.
