Among the mourners at Tom Mboya's funeral was the opposition leader, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga. Next to him is Masinde Muliko. Kenya’s renowned photojournalist, Mohamed (Mo) Amin, also known as ‘Six Camera Mo’, photographed and documented the life of Tom Mboya. In 1969, a telephone call put Mo on the track of one of the most momentous events in Kenya’s history. Mohamed Amin’s footage and stills of Mboya’s assassination, all exclusive, led TV news bulletins and front pages of newspapers across the world earning him the 1969 British Television Cameraman of the Year Award in the hard news silent category, and also his first staff contract with Visnews, now Reuters Television. Within minutes Mohamed (Mo) Amin was at the scene at the pharmacy in downtown Nairobi where Tom Mboya was gunned down by an assassin.
