Harambee Stars skipper Dennis Oliech's mother Mary Auma Oliech is admitted at Urgenes Hospital Ambroise where doctors have diagnosed her with cancer.
Auma Oliech has been in and out of hospital in Nairobi until the doctors discovered the disease and the family made quick efforts to take her to France where her son is based. She is currently under treatment with doctors saying she is making good progress.
Oliech who plays for Ajaccio wrote on his facebook page "I fear losing my mother" perhaps telling the pain he was experiencing.
