Elsewhere, Strathmore Leos are set to miss the services of centre Shem Okola, who underwent an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) surgery following an injury picked during Saturday's 19-7 loss to Menengai Oilers at Strathmore Complex in Madaraka.
The club revealed that a successful surgery was done to fix the player’s broken tibia.
ORIF surgery is used for serious fractures that can’t be treated with a cast or splint. These injuries are usually fractures that are displaced, unstable or those that involve the joint.
