Kenyan Premier League referee Nicholas Omondi has passed on at a hospital in Kisii, several sources have revealed.
Omondi survived a road accident on his way to officiate a league fixture between Gor Mahia and Bandari FC on 12 December 2021 at Nyayo Stadium early this month.
He served as a fourth official during the game but complained of some pain.
He was admitted two days later in Kisii after the pain persisted and underwent a procedure.
“Heading to theatre in a few mins, prayers” were Omondi’s last words as posted on his Facebook account.
He hailed from Ndhiwa, Homabay County.
Omondi was amongst top-flight, including lower tier, match officials who are yet to be paid for their services since last year.
