Former Kenyan defender George 'Jojo' Waweru has been taken ill and is currently at Kenyatta National Hospital.

According to a close friend and former Administration Police FC assistant coach David Ongiri, ‘Jojo’ has been ailing for a while. “Waweru is unwell. He doesn't look good at all. He has been sick for some time now and we have brought him to KNH for treatment.

“He has not been attended to yet, we are waiting for the doctors to examine him," Ongiri told Goal in an interview.

Ongiri further called on football stakeholders to come to the aid of the former towering defender. "Jojo made many people happy during his playing days and he deserves better treatment. I call upon all football stakeholders to come out and help him.

“He needs us now, let's join hands to ensure he gets good treatment.”
