Since his demise more than 24 hours ago, Ahmed Darwesh has been praised as one of the greatest Swahili news anchors we have ever had in our nation. A mentor to the likes of Rashid Abdalla, Mwanaisha , Harith Salim among others the men-tees paid tribute to the icon as a man who was gentle and loved GOD above all.
Ahmed Darwesh’s empty desk at KTN showcased the owner had put his faith ahead of anything. The desk which has a computer also had an Islamic Quran, Sandals and a prayer mat evidenced by the statements made by his friends that he would always go for prayers no matter how much came by.
