Nairobi - A former Ulinzi Stars FC player was among the soldiers killed in the Al Adde attack in Somalia it has revealed.

Kevin Ouma who featured for  the club for 6 years died in the attack which took place January 15 when Al Shabaab forces attacked the camp in the wee hours of the morning.

" Kevin is no more. He died in the Shabaab attack in Somalia. We are heartbroken as his family," his cousin Michael told News24.

Ulinzi Stars assistant coach Francis Onyiso said that the former defender was a huge loss to the KDF family.

" This is a big loss. He was still a figure of respect amongst us. We loved him even though he had stopped playing," he said.

Ulinzi is a military outfit that features in the top tier Kenyan Premier League.

The full-back suffered a torn meniscus in 2014 that forced him to retire from competitive football and opted to focus on his military career despite showing steady progress and starting to train with the Ulinzi Stars youthful side.

He won the Premier League title with Ulinzi in 2012 and was named defender of the year by the Kenyan Premier League for his exploits.

He was among what is said to have been around 240 soldiers i the camp when the Al Adde attack took place.

So far, the KDF has yet to state how many died in the attacks.
