'Tahidi High' star dies

02 October 2014, 15:28 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - The entertainment industry has had heavy losses to its ranks this year after losing Derick Amunga and Jastorina earlier in the year. Yesterday, it lost another leading light after famed director Omwoko Aswani passed away after a short battle with liver cancer.

Aswani 34, is said to have discovered the illness barely a month ago after experiencing unbearable stomach pains.

Aswani is known for directing some of Kenya’s leading TV shows including Tahidi High, Makutano Junction, Machachari, Mashtaka, Mama Duka and Auntie Boss among many others. The industry mourns the loss of a person who had great potential before his untimely demise.

" You were a brother, a friend and now you are gone. You nurtured a million young talents and inspired a million people in a way you never comprehended, but now you are in a better platform, ..You are with the Lord. I envy you. Goo thee thou my friend, my brother.  Till we meet again. Loved you. I mourn you".

May he rest in eternal peace.
