K24 journalist Daniel Chemjor dies in car accident
Daniel Chemjor, a journalist from K24 who had been reported missing, has been confirmed dead.
His vehicle that had plunged into the deep Cheploch gorge in Baringo County was retrieved on Thursday morning.
A military crane was used in the operation that took a multi-agency team almost four hours to complete.
Chemjor’s car is said to have veered off the road as it was approaching Kerio River bridge on Wednesday night.
Reports indicate that the car rolled several times before plunging into the killer gorge.
Police who arrived at the scene immediately after were forced to wait till morning as darkness hampered their efforts to locate the car.
Colleagues from across the media industry expressed feelings of shock and grief on learning of his demise.
“He was highly respected by mangers and employees alike throughout the entire company. He was regarded as a dedicated worker by everyone who worked with him,” acting Media Max CEO Kenneth Ngaruiya said in a statement.
He added that Chemjor’s contribution to the company during his seven year tenure was one of dedication and selfless service.
