Kenya’s football darling Kevin Opiyo Oliech will be buried at his rural home in Seme Ratta, Kisumu County.

His body will be flown in from Germany on September 2, 2020. It will arrive on September 3, 2020 at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
Two days after his death, Kevin’s big brother Ken Oliech started a GoFundMe page requesting for fans, friends and relatives to help raise funds to bring Kevin’s bdy home for burial.
On the page Ken wrote, “Help me repartriate my brother home for burial.”
So far, the GoFundMe page has raised 2545 euros. Their target amount was 10,000 euros.
Based on the schedule of Kevin’s last journey home, once he arrives, his body will be preserved at Umash while in Nairobi.
This is the same place his late mother, Mary Auma, was also kept before her burial back in July 2018.
Then on September 4, 2020, Kevin’s body leaves for the final rites to Seme Kisumu County.
The following day, Kevin will be laid to rest at Seme Ratta.
