AFC Leopards has joined forward Ezekiel Odera in mourning the demise of his mother at Kenyatta National Hospital.
Diana Omulo, Odera's mother, succumbed to cancer after battling the disease for one year. Odera scored one of the two goals when Leopards beat SoNy Sugar at Awendo Stadium in the fifth KPL round match. That is his second goal so far since returning to the top tier from Nairobi City Stars. His first came at Narok against Sofapaka.
"As we celebrate our 2-0 win over Sony Sugar FC at Awendo Green Stadium we are sad to announce the death of Mary Dinah Awour Omulo mother to Ezekiel Odera Omulo (who scored our first goal on March 4th). She had been admitted to KNH for over a year fighting cancer, staying in Umoja 2 and has an accrued bill of Ksh.240,000. May her soul rest in peace Let's pray and support Ezekiel in this trying and hard moment," the club announced.
Odera has also played for Ushuru and KCB.
