"Our hearts are heavy as we say Rest in Peace to Kevin Mukuche and offer our deepest condolences to his friends and family. 

"He was a cherished colleague who brought warmth, dedication, and kindness to our team. Forever in our memories," the station announced on X (formerly Twitter).

Capital FM further noted that it would miss Mukuche who was famous for his smile and deadpan expressions which inspired its The Day Job series.

The series, broken down into seven episodes, touched on a variety of the day-to-day aspects of social life at any workplace, ranging from office courtships, romance, Valentine's Day and salary bonuses among others.

What is common towards the end of each episode is Mukuche putting on his headphones to listen to music courtesy of the radio station and during each episode, he never utters a word.

Messages of condolence have been pouring in from all corners following the demise of Mukuche, who was an experienced Account Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the media agency sales industry.

At the time of his death, he was working at Capital FM as an account manager, a role he also held at the Royal Media Services (RMS) in 2021, having worked at the same media house between 2019 and 2020 as a Business Executive.

Mukuche also worked at the Nation Media Group (NMG) for three years and held roles such as business executive for NTV, agency administration executive and data entry clerk.

At the media house, he was also known for his football stint for Nation FC and was nicknamed Kenya's Harry Kane. Even after leaving NMG, he still continued to play for Nation FC and was part of the squad that came from behind to beat Bunge FC 2-1 during a friendly match at Police Sacco Stadium in Nairobi on Thursday.

He began his career as a digital media intern at Mediamax Networks Limited which owns K24 and People Daily among 12 media brands.

He held a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) focused in Communication and Media Studies from Daystar University.

Mukuche's demise came two months after the death of renowned sports presenter, Sean Cardovillis, who also worked at Capital FM.
