Nationwide side Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) is mourning the demise of their player Kevin Opondo.
Opondo was studying a degree in Agriculture and Biotechnology at the Kakamega based University.
He passed on while undergoing treatment at Moi Referral hospital in Eldoret after a long illness.
Head coach Ochieng Ahaya has described Opondo as a player who had passion for rugby game.
“We have received sad news this morning that Opondo is no more. Opondo was passionate and really loved the game. He trained with us for a while but had a problem that put him on the sidelines. We send our condolences to his family and friends, Ochieng told the Scrummage.
Opondo becomes the third rugby player to pass on this year.
Scrummage wishes to extend our most heartfelt condolences to MMUST and Opondo’s family.
