Oliech's mum ailing in France



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.

Oliech's sister Elsie Oliech who is taking care of the mother in hospital told supersport.com about the latest developments.

"The doctors discovered that my mother has advanced liver and lung cancer and what were are doing now as a family is keeping her in prayers and we want to thank all those that have sent get well wishes to the family which has been distraught with the sad news."

She is the mother to a footballing family that includes the late Steve Okumu who was once the top scorer in the Kenyan Premier League before leaving for the US, Andrew Oyombe, Ken Oliech and Kevin Oliech.
