KRU mourn the death of Edward ‘Ogre’ Kinyany

Kenya Rugby Union chairman Sasha Mutai has led Kenyans in mourning the sudden death of former Kenya international forward, Edward ‘Ogre’ Kinyany.

Kinyanyi, who passed away yesterday won the Kenya Cup with Kenya Harlequin as both a player and coach but also served as the club’s Chairman during the 2012-13 season.

His contributions extended beyond domestic accolades; he was an integral part of the Kenya Simbas coaching staff that led the Kenya Simbas to multiple Elgon Cup triumphs and the 2011 Africa Cup title under the guidance of Michael “Tank” Otieno.

On the rugby field, Ogre was a towering presence and a relentless competitor, yet off the field, he exuded a gentle and larger-than-life personality that left an indelible mark on those he encountered. His absence leaves a void that words cannot adequately fill.

“Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, and we offer our heartfelt prayers for strength during this challenging period,” said Mutai.
