Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa has paid tribute to the deceased former Kenyan legend Sammy Taabu.
Taabu, a former AFC Leopards midfielder, collapsed and died on Friday after undertaking a fitness training session at Railway Training Institute ground.
In his massage, Mwendwa has described the former Harambee Stars ace as an icon sympathizing with Kenya for losing such a person.
My condolences to the family and friends of the late Sammy Taabu, football has indeed lost an icon. RIP skipper. — Nick Mwendwa (@Nmwendwa) April 15, 2017
Taabu, also played for Harambee Stars during his prime time and coached a number of teams among them Kangemi United and AFC Leopards (assistant coach).
