Nairobi - A former radio journalist has died after drowning in a dam where he had gone to swim.

The deceased worked for Nation Media Group.

David Kiarie, 35, drowned while swimming in a dam in Ruiru on Wednesday afternoon but his body was only retrieved Friday.

He was seen entering Tytanic restaurant alone around midday, and kept to himself throughout listening to music on his phone.

"After a while, he was seen changing into shorts ready to swim and later jumping into the dam where he swam for a few minutes before disappearing into the waters arousing the curiosity of the onlookers," Michael Kamau, Kiarie's brother-in-law, told the Daily Nation.

The witnesses reported the incident to the restaurant's management which then called local authorities who searched his bag and found Kiarie's Identity Card, and used the details to reach his family.

His body was found by divers Friday.

The circumstances of his death has shocked many, who knew him as a quiet and hardworking man.
