With profound sorrow we would like to inform you all about the sad demise of Mr. Peter Wekesa and Mr. John Wekesa through a fatal road accident yesterday.
Peter was a captain at Homeboyz Rugby Club that led the team on an unbeaten streak winning the ESS Cup that earned us promotion to the Kenya Cup in 2011. The two were also brothers of the late Andrew Wekesa.
Let’s pray for the departed Souls and the bereaved friends, family members and the rugby family especially through this trying time.
Homeboyz Rugby Club expresses our deep and heartfelt condolences and joins in praying for the sorrowing family who have lost three young men in less than a year. Let our Almighty God take the departed souls to their Heavenly Abode and give the entire family strength to bear this heartbreaking loss.
We will give further updates once we receive them and request that we all allow the family time to grieve,” reads a statement from Homeboyz Rugby.
Peter and John were siblings to former Homeboyz star Andrew Wekesa who passed away early this year after being stabbed by robbers.
