“He was a stickler for grammatical accuracy and used his platforms to break down the English language and teach us new things — even those we figured we knew,” Ruto said on Wednesday.

“Ochieng’, a widely read hero, was simply in his own class; a man of varied intellectual pursuits.”

Ochieng died at Ombo Mission Hospital in Migori. The DP said that his work will always be missed.

“May his rich legacy endure forever. Our love and prayers to the Ochieng’ family, their loved ones and the media fraternity. Rest In Peace.,” he said.
