Former NTV presenter Janet Kanini died on Saturday after a battle with lung cancer.
“My friend [Kanini] breathed her last this morning,” NTV anchor Larry Madowo tweeted.
Last year in February the presenter said she was cancer free.
In a long post on her Facebook account, Kanini said an MRI scan conducted on her showed no signs of lesions in her liver, abdomen, bones, lymph nodes and lungs.
Kanini attributed her healing to a support network of friends, family and strangers praying for her and encouraging her.
She made special mention of her husband who she said only recently revealed to her that doctors had given her less than six months to live after she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.
