On Saturday 10th December 2016, Mwamba RC Scrumhalf Victor Wayodi passed away at the Nairobi Womens Hospital, Adams Arcade, Nairobi. Wayodi, 24, had been admitted to the hospital after going down on the pitch complaining of chest pains during round six of his team’s fixture against Nakuru RFC.
A postmortem was performed on 12th December under the observation of the Mwamba team doctor and Victor’s family. The postmortem determined the cause of death to be a complication of coronary artery disease.
There will be a funeral service for Victor on Thursday 22nd December 2016 at St. Paul’s University Chapel in Nairobi at 2.00pm. Victor will be buried in Bondo, Siaya County on Saturday 24th December. The funeral procession will depart on Friday 23rd December from Umash Funeral Home at 6.00am.
The Mwamba club and wider rugby fraternity mourn the loss of a young promising player who still had a lot more to live for. We wish Victor a peaceful and eternal rest.
Thank you very much for the support and encouragement during this difficult time.
President, Mwamba Rugby Club
