Kenya Simbas and KCB Rugby Club mourn the demise of their full-back Tony Onyango, who collapsed and died on Tuesday night at around 10 pm in his house in Ngong.
The 28-year-old was reportedly well on Tuesday and even reported to training with his current club KCB ahead of the Kenya Cup playoffs slated for this weekend.
His club made this moving condoling statement after the body was taken to Umash Funeral Home.
“It is with seismic disturbance that we announce the sudden death of our KCB Rugby player Tony Onyango Opondo. This happened at his home in Ngong on the 3rd of March 2020. We will update on further details. We ask for your prayers during this trying time,” read a statement from KCB confirmed by Team Manager Philip Wamae.
As long as he lived, Tony left the world with memories that even death will not do away with.
Below are some of his dazzling photos that will keep his memory alive for his family, friends and supporters.
Onyango was a graduate from Strathmore University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Informatics. He joined the Varsity in 2010 after finishing his form four education at Maseno School.
He was part of the golden Strathmore Leos squad that reached the Kenya Cup final in 2013.
His former Strathmore Leos team manager Fahad Adil remembered him as a great sportsman.
“A great player, a great fullback,” he said.
The 28-year-old was a proud father of a handsome boy that suffered autism.
