Former Kameme FM presenter Njoki wa Ndegwa dies in Dallas TX

4 94

Njoki wa Ndegwa passed away on Friday at Parklands Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas.

Njoki, the co-founder and host at Jambo Radio Network online station was battling metastatic brain tumours.

She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 and after battling the disease, she was given a clean bill of health.

But in 2017, she started experiencing problems with her balance and voice and was diagnosed with Metastatic Brain Tumours.

Metastatic brain tumours (also called secondary brain tumours) are caused by cancer cells spreading (metastasizing) to the brain from a different part of the body.

The tumours led to Njoki losing her voice as well as mobility.

Our Heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

    Rest in Peace Njoki. Thank you for the radio moments you gave so many Kenyans. I met Diaspora grandmothers listening to you on Boston/Jambo radio on cellphones around the USA. You reached many people in their homes, jobs, truck driving…Your Kikuyu was awesome. You words, voice and wit were excellent. I am privileged to have met you and sat on the same dinner table in Dallas. You were a warm hearted, loving and gifted person. May you rest with the angels until we all meet again. Fare the well!

    Love from Comfort Munoru Mwangi.

    Thank you God for Njoki.

    She gave Kenyans both at home and in diaspora some of the best moments and memories will last forever. May her soul rest in peace.

    Njoki was a huge part of our DFW kenya diaspora community. She will be missed. We pray for her family to be strengthened and comforted in this hour of pain and grief. Her beautiful voice still echos in the hears of many.
    Our Heavenly Father knows that we learn and grow and become stronger as we face and survive the trials through which we must pass. Grief, and suffering that accompanies loss, is a part of mortality as we lose loved ones or experience other tragedies. Because Christ has suffered the pains and afflictions of all mankind, we can be comforted to know his Atonement makes it possible for a reunion hereafter. May her soul rest in eternal peace till we meet again

    When Njoki wa Ndegwa was working at Kameme FM in early 2000, I could hardly miss her show which I vividly remember came between 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. She was articulate, had a good mastery of Kikuyu language not to mention her words of wisdom and wise counsel which she readily and freely gave with a distinct sweet mellow voice that made you hooked to her programmes every other day.
    Njoki surely touched many souls because her radio session was not about working but a service to humanity and she did it selflessly, religiously and with strong passion.
    Your service was not in vain and your legacy Njoki will live for ever.
    May the good Lord rest your soul in eternal peace. Amen!!!
