A celebrated KBC anchor Badi Muhsin has died on Friday 8th of October 2021, at a Mombasa Hotel at around 4:00 p.m.
Badi is popularly known for his Kiswahili show on Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) ‘Dira ya Dunia.’ He served Kiswahili news for over 30 years.
Nassor told the press through a telephone that Muhsin had just finished his Friday prayers, took lunch, and returned to his hotel room, where he then complained of feeling unwell.
Nassor said, “He called a friend to say he was unwell. When the friend asked if he could take him [Badi] to the hospital, he declined to say he would be okay.”
Not quite long after Badi returned to the room he gave up the ghost.
Tributes poured on social media after news of his demise.
