AFCON – The Harambee Stars will be without dependable defender Joash Onyango when they face Algeria in their opening Group C match tonight, according to reports.

The Gor Mahia defense stalwart, famously known as “Berlin Wall”, picked up an injury during Saturday’s training in Cairo.

Onyango has been a cog in the Stars back-line and his absence is a big blow. He partnered USA-based youngster Joseph Okumu in Kenya’s last friendly against the DRC which ended in 1-1 draw.
