Former radio presenter Jack Hillary Ojiambo is dead. Jack was a pioneering enthusiast of Jazz in Kenya going so far as to host a Jazz Club Show that aired on Chris Kirubi’s radio station. 

The show shared a tribute to the legend dedicating the show that airs from 7 pm to 10 pm every Sunday to him. Ojiambo hosted the Jazz show for 17 years from 1996 to 2013.

After retiring from radio, Ojiambo vied for Dagoretti North Member of Parliament but lost to the incumbent Simba Arati.

Fans of the late host took to Twitter to share their sympathies and condolences.
