It was a sad moment as family and friends mourned the former Kenya Sevens head Coach Benjamin Otieno Ayimba at a requiem mass held at Our Lady Queen of Peace, Nairobi.
Tuesday celebrated his life
Ayimba’s Widow Caroline Waswa accompanied by former wife Lois Onyango and children Brian, Gabriel, Keenan and Eli celebrated the Ayimba during the service.
Also present was Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) Chairman Oduor Gangla and Ayimba’s family spokesman Oscar Osir, former KRU chairman Mwangi Muthee, Kenya Rugby League Federation (KRLF) Chairman Edward Nyakwaka and Humphrey Kayange.
Osir said Ayimba, 44, loved everybody and anything he touched on, but was tough when making decisions and sticking to them.
Muthee said Ayimba represented everything that is rugby.
