President Uhuru Kenyatta is among the key figures that have eulogized the late Mama Dennis Oliech.

Mary Auma, mother to former Harambee Stars captain Dennis Oliech, died on Friday at her home in Lavington after developing difficulty in breathing. Mama Oliech as she was popularly known was also receiving treatment for cancer.

The late Auma was also popular for her famous ‘Mama Oliech’ restaurant which she managed. Oliech’s elder brother and manager Nickson Onywanda confirmed his mother’s death and said the body was moved to Umash Funeral Home.

Five years ago, she was diagnosed with cancer and spent close to one year undergoing treatment in Paris where Oliech was playing football.
