Former Harambee Stars skipper Musa “Otero” Otieno has tested positive for Coronavirus, a close friend has confirmed to this writer.
The 46-year-old was tranfered from Kenyatta National Hospital to Mbagathi County Hospital, a national COVID-19 management centre, on Sunday.
“He called me to say he had contracted the virus, but I didn’t believe him, then on Sunday he called again as he was being transferred to Mbagathi Hospital and since then his phone has been off,” said the anonymous source.
A photo of the former Tusker and AFC Leopards defender has since emerged online, showing him lying on a hospital bed.
As at Monday, Kenya reported 6,190 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
Football Kenya Federation boss Nick Mwendwa has led football lovers in wishing Musa a quick recovery.
