In a sad turn of events, veteran radio presenter Patrobas Agawo is dead. Patrobas had been a news anchor at the Dholuo radio station, Ramogi Fm for quite some time. Reports indicate that he passed on at the Nairobi Hospital after a short illness. He was well known by a number of his fans as just Papa.
Born on September 23, 1948, Patrobas has had a long career spanning over 30 years. He has worked for a number of leading broadcasters, including Voice of Kenya (now KBC), the British Broadcasting Cooperation (BBC) and Royal Media Services. He will be greatly missed as he played a major role in setting up and the subsequent growth of Ramogi FM.
Patrobas died at the age of 69.
