Veteran rally ace Ben Muchemi passes on

23 December 2013, 11:05

Nairobi - Ben Muchemi, popularly known as 'Baba Shiro' for so long a darling of the Kenyan rally world has passed on.

The rally driver succumbed to cancer at the MP Shah hospital Saturday evening a few days after returning from India where he was receiving treatment.

The late Muchemi was the chairman of the Kenya Motor Sports Federation and  was also the chairman of the Sports Stadia Management Board (SSMB).

" He was a man of passion for the sport and the rally fraternity in Kenya will miss a man of vigour, brilliance and hard work, rally legend Patrick Njiru said.

Muchemi had been suffering from Stomach cancer for the past year and had lost much of his functionality including ability to walk.

He was a veteran of over 200 local rallies in his time and will be remembered as one of the pioneer black drivers in the local rally scene.
