The Tragic Demise of Fortune Sacco Player

Coastweek -- The cruel hand of death continued to rob the Coast football fraternity when a footballer drowned on Thursday, February 23 after a boat capsized at Wasini Island, off the coastline of the Indian Ocean.
 

Rashid Leja who played for Embu based FKF National Division One side, Fortune Sacco FC is said to have been crossing to play at a local football match at Wasini Island when tragedy struck.

According to the deceased’s cousin Mariam Mwichande Hamisi, strong winds capsized the boat and while the rest of the people on board survived, efforts to rescue Rashid were futile.

His body drifted into deep shark infested waters of the Indian Ocean.

The deceased body was recovered on the shores of the Indian Ocean archipelago of Pemba in the neighboring Tanzania, the following day and transported to Shimoni creek from where it was taken to Ng’ombeni for burial.
