The Kenya Rugby fraternity is coming to terms with the death of another player, after Mwamba RFC scrum-half Victor ‘yoods’ Wayodi passed on on Saturday during his comeback match.
Wayodi had earlier injured his back during the Impala Floodlit Tournament, that saw him miss the first two months of action.
Wayodi collapsed on the pitch after developing breathing difficulties while playing against Nakuru RFC.
The 24-year-old was rushed to Nairobi Women’s hospital but succumbed to cardiac arrest while undergoing treatment.
“Wayodi collapsed during the match and was rushed to the hospital but unfortunately, he passed on as a result of cardiac arrest,” said Mwamba communications officer, Collins Nabiswa.
This comes barely a week after Nondescript’s center Ogeto Gecheo succumbed to breathing problems after undergoing spine surgery, he suffered the injury during their match against Strathmore Leos at Madaraka grounds.
Gecheo who was plucked by the cruel hand of death aged only 19 will be laid to rest today in Njoro.
Both players were Maseno alumnus, where they honed their rugby skills, before joining their respective clubs.
