The former Kenya 7s and 15s captain who lost a protracted battle to cerebral malaria at the Kenyatta National Hospital last Friday will be buried in his native home in Alego, Siaya county.
“The burial will be on the 11th of June in Alego, Siaya County. There will be final details, there will be a mass in Nairobi probably on Tuesday that week,” KRU chairman Oduor Gangla said.
Burial plans for the rugby legend are in top gear with the immediate goal being settling the hospital bill.
“Come out and support us, and put money together. We still have a pending bill of about 1.7 million, which hasn’t been cleared which we need to do. And we also need to give Benja the sort of exit that he deserves,” Gangla added.
Ayimba bows out aged 44 is remembered for leading Kenya to a first ever Sevens World Series tournament win as we beat Fiji 30-7 in the Singapore 7s final in 2016.
