Remembering Kone Nouhoum: Biography and TV shows featured
Celebrated Kenyan actor Kone Nouhoum succumbed to injuries yesterday morning five months after his accident that had him hospitalised at the Nairobi Hospital Intensive Care Unit.
The Kenya Film Commission joined other Kenyans on social media to express their condolences to the actor who was a familiar face in our local screens.
Kone may have passed on, but no one who’s ever watched him in action can forget his great talent that he showcased in every TV role he played. Take a look at some of the best TV roles that Kone gave us.
