Chemelil coach bereaved

Chemelil coach Mike Mururi lost his wife Victoria Chepkemoi Mururi who passed on Friday evening at their home in Kericho.

An inconsolable Mururi intimated to supersport.com that his wife was in good health and was going about her errands as normal when she suddenly hit a stone and lost her life.

Mururi who has two children with Victoria has been at the helm Chemelil Sugar since coach Edward Manoah was sacked in October.

"Today is one of my saddest days after I lost my dear wife Victoria who was not even sick. She was going about her business as usual when she hit a stone and that is the way she passed on. I am still in shock trying to gather my thoughts," a sombre Mururi told supersport.com.

Mururi was one of the longest serving players in Kenya having made his debut under then coach Reinhardt Fabisch in 1997. He won the league with Oserian in 2000 and 2001 before moving to Western Kenya where he joined Chemelil.
