Larry Madowo was left confused after a fan reported that he was dead. A fan went on social media posting a picture of Larry with the message that the journalist had lost his life after suffering coronavirus.
The former NTV man got hold of the message and shared it on his Twitter page, stating it was exaggerated. Larry tweeted:
“Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. I was in the emergency room (ER) last week!”
The comments were very confusing as some misunderstood the massage as they could not understand what was going on.
This came days after he posted an image of himself being lifted into an ambulance. The hard-hitting journalist, who has since recovered, said it was not a case of coronavirus and that he would live to see another day.
Well, the fan might have read his message wrongly or their intention was to cause panic among his fans. Larry left the BBC to concentrate on his studies in the US.
He was in Kenya over the festive holiday in 2019 before heading back for his studies. The journalist is taking a prestigious course at Columbia University in New York.
The celebrated TV man is a Knight-Bagehot fellow in economics and business journalism at the university.
