Gina Din managing director Lorna Irungu has succumbed to Covid-19 complications.
Ms Irungu is famously known for a 1990 TV programme that aired on KBC known as Omo-Pick-a-Box.
Ms Irungu also hosted Club Kiboko for five years between 1994 and 1999, while also producing magazine show Maisha and a youth dialogue dubbed Niaje. She later hosted State of The Nation at then-Nation FM.
In 1998, she underwent her first kidney transplant at Nairobi Hospital after a donation from her father.
In 2000, the kidney got infected and her sister offered her another. She had another kidney failure in 2007, and this time her brother donated the organ.
Irungu has been running her own Company, Siwa Communications, for over 13 years.
In 2016, she was chosen as one of the Eisenhower Fellows.
She was appointed as the managing director for Gina Din in 2018.
