The funeral service of veteran sports journalist Robert Soi, who died on 26th May in Nairobi Hospital is currently underway.

His Burial will be this Saturday at their home in Kericho.

The former KTN Sports editor and CGTN presenter was admitted to hospital on Thursday, May 20, for surgery to clear a blood clot in his brain after he fell and hit his head.

He reported the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa for KTN and participated in the Safari Rally in the 2011 KCB Safari Rally.
