After rumours circulated on social media that the former Kenyan boxer Conjestina had passed away, we have just confirmed that she is still alive. Her elder brother Peter Odhiambo however has died. Odhiambo had been ill and had been admitted to the Yala Level Four hospital three days ago but passed away this morning.

He will be laid to rest in Gem, Siaya County on Friday.

May he rest in peace and may Conjestina and her family find comfort at this difficult time.
