Musa calls for help for 'Jojo'



Former Harambee Stars skipper Musa Otieno has called on the football fraternity and Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to come to the aid of former Harambee stars defender George Japheth ‘Jojo’ Waweru.

Waweru who was instrumental in Harambee Stars’ 2004 Afcon campaign in Tunisia before suffering a serious neck injury has been on a downward spiral at Maringo Estate with deteriorating health due to alcoholism.

Musa lamented the poor condition of Waweru who was his teammate telling supersport.com he could not believe how things had turned for the former star player.

"George Waweru is in dire need of help from the football fraternity has his health is deteriorating and he is living a life of hopelessness. This was a player who gave so much to this country and I believe it’s not right to see him go down to that level. It is sad to see Jojo being reduced to an alcoholic and now everybody has run away from him. I feel former footballers should come together with the federation to help him before the situation becomes worse," Musa told supersport.com.

A spot check by supersport.com revealed that Waweru who was recently involved in water vending business is living a miserable life and has resorted to drinking the lethal local brew known as "Changaa" and is usually chased away from the den by the brewers.

Waweru was lost for words when supersport.com caught up with him in his drunken state, "I have lost hope in life and need urgent help."

He had a chequered career that saw him play for Re-Union and AFC Leopards before moving to Rwanda's APR then Mtibwa Sugar in Tanzania. He also played for Vasteras in Sweden where he played for Vasteras before returning to Kenya where played for Rangers.

He has 34 caps for Kenya.
