Kisumu’s statement reads:

Kisumu RFC is deeply saddened by the death of our former player Richard Sidindi which occurred on the morning of Monday 25 February 2019 in Nairobi
Jadhah, as he was popularly known, was an affable character and a dedicated rugby player.

He joined our team in 2005 immediately after completing his high school education at St. Mary’s Yala and would feature for us while he undertook his undergraduate studies at Maseno University until 2011 when he made the move to Impala Saracens, the club that he turned out for until his demise.

He was also part of the Western Buffaloes franchise that played in the now defunct Bamburi Rugby Super Series in 2010 and 2011.

Despite making the move to Impala Saracens, he was never too far from Kisumu, often monitoring our progress and making the effort to attend our fixtures.

As recently as two weeks ago he was at KCB Sports Club offering our women’s team encouragement as they played at the second round of the KRU Women’s Festival. 
The Kisumu RFC family stands together with his wife Catherine, daughter Candace, family, team mates at Impala Saracens, and all those who knew him
