Former CNN Inside Africa Host, Soni Methu, Dies at 34

Kenyan journalist Soni Methu, the former host of CNN’s “Inside Africa,” has died at the age of 34.

According to CNN, Soni collapsed suddenly on Thursday in Kenya and died en route to the hospital. And this was confirmed by her sister, Faith Methu, who the cause of death is still unknown.

“We don’t know much but a post mortem will be done to tell exactly what happened,” Faith Methu said.
