Arshad Sharif, a renowned journalist, and broadcaster, was shot and killed in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya.
Javeria Siddiqui, Sharif’s spouse, verified the awful news on Twitter and acknowledged that her husband had died in Kenya.
She also encouraged the people and the media to refrain from posting on social media any images of their families, private information, or Sharif’s final images from the hospital.
