It is with great sadness that Indymedia Africa announced the death of Shephen Nyash:

Dear Comrades
I am very sad to inform you that last night, our friend, comrade and colleague Stephen Nyash was shot dead in Korogocho where he lived and worked for most of his life. Nyash was one of those who represented Kenya Indymedia in Senegal last year. He was one of the founders of Koch FM and we have been working very closely with him, with the latest activity being the Conference of People that was held in Korogocho in December. It is still unclear who did this but we will inform you more when more details emerge. The struggle continues,
John Bwakali

Stephen Nyash took part in the Indymedia Convergence that was held in Dakar, Senagal during the World Social Forum in 2010. That conversgence was sponsored by Deep Dish TV and Global Indymedia. Stephen's contribution to the convergence was very important as his first hand experiences with Koch FM were useful in the discussions about building community radios in Africa. After workshops in Dakar, a group of Indymedia activists traveled to Mali tolaunch a station there.
