Former Shabana FC chairman Dr Yabesh Nyandoro Kambi is being laid to rest today at his Kitengela home.

Dr Kambi’s body has been lying at Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi County since February 10, 2023 when he died under puzzling circumstances.

The advocate, who was popularly known as ‘Daktari’, was at his law firm in Kitengela, Kajiado County when he collapsed and died after briefly complaining of a headache, according to his younger brother Ronald Kambi.

Dr Kambi was elected unopposed as Shabana chairman in 2021 to succeed Mr Jared Omboni Nevaton.

The club eulogised their fallen chairman as a charismatic, diligent and visionary leader whose long years of service at the team touched and positively impacted many lives.

“It is sad that we have lost a visionary leader. Kambi has left a big gap at the club,” club secretary-general Elizaphan Kerama said.

Dr Kambi, who died aged 51, was the third born in a family of 13. He leaves behind a wife and three children – two boys and a girl.
