Former KCB coach Rishadi Shedu requires Sh2 million to undergo a reconstructive surgery on his ankle.
Shedu is set to travel to India later this year for the reconstruction of a broken left foot ankle that has kept him out of active game for some time.
Shedu’s medical fundraiser is slated for March 7, 2018, in Nairobi.
Meanwhile, newly appointed Sports and Heritage Cabinet Secretary, Rashid Achesa has been urged to prioritize the welfare of sportsmen and women as he takes office this week.
Former Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Sam Nyamweya appealed to Achesa, who replaced Hassan Wario as the new Sports CS, to set aside a medical cover for former legends.
Nyamweya was speaking after visiting the ailing Shedu alongside a dozen of former football legends that included Chairman of the Kenya Football Coaches Association (Kefoca), Ricky Solomon, Bobby Ogolla, Mahmoud Abbas and Marshall Mulwa.
“We should honour our former legends and sportsmen who have contributed a lot and ensure they are provided with a comprehensive medical cover,” said Nyamweya.
