Former Cricket star Odumbe in rehab

24 February 2015, 12:44 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - A few months after a feature was done on the squalid life of one of Kenya’s biggest cricket stars Maurice Odumbe, and his addiction to drugs, a few of his friends have managed to get him to a rehab centre for treatment.

The cricket star made his debut in 1990 in a match against Bangladesh, immediately sky rocketing to the top of the Kenyan roster. He was however banned from the sport for allegedly taking money from book makers in 2004 for 5 years, making an attempt at returning to the sport aged 40.

His life after this massive fall from grace had been in shambles until Robert Ruale and Heshan De Silva stepped in to give him a second chance in life. They have just released a video which was shot yesterday when they were taking the fallen star to a rehab centre in Ridgeways here in Nairobi for treatment.

They are asking people to show their love and support for the former cricketing legend by sending contributions to MPESA : PAYBILL : 888350 : ACCOUNT : MAURICE ODUMBE. Check out the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgnQCa6FR5k
