Confirming the news, family of Philip Ochieng announced the demise of the legendary journalist who passed on last night at the age of 83 years old at his home in Awendo, Migori County.

His death has brought together prominent public figure, celebrated media industry players and Kenyans as a whole together in paying tribute and celebrating the life well lived of the fallen father of scribes.


"Sad to hear the death of the legendary scribe Philip Ochieng. A man whose pen shaped many of us in the industry. The 5th columnist was a man full of knowledge and always eager to share. A man who told me I cannot say or write 'can't be able' some 13 years ago at Nation centre", recounted Radio Africa Group digital editor Oliver Mathenge.

Philip started his early education back in Awendo village before being admitted to the prestigious Alliance High School. He emerged as the best 10 performers in his year and later enrolled to a university in the United States for further studies.
