Former Stars defender Musa Otieno discharged after fully recovering from COVID-19

Former Harambee Stars captain Musa Otieno is out of hospital after fully recovering from coronavirus.

Otieno has been undergoing treatment at a Nairobi hospital for the past ten days after he tested positive for the coronavirus disease.

While speaking to Nation Sport on Wednesday, Otieno thanked God and all those who stood by him during the period.

“I wish to thank God and everyone else who stood by me during this period,” he said.

The 46-year-old further said he would self isolate for 14 days as per the Ministry of Health’s requirements.

“I am feeling better. I will first self isolate for two weeks as per the requirements of the Ministry of Health.”

Citizen TV reported that Otieno’s elder brother confirmed through a text message that, “He (Musa Otieno) is already out of hospital.”

Before retiring, Otieno played for AFC Leopards and Tusker FC in Kenya before moving to Santos FC in South Africa.

Otieno, through his Kick Off to Hope Organization, has been on the steering front in distribution of foodstuffs to vulnerable communities in his home district Maringo.

Musa Otieno pulls a cart containing foodstuffs meant to cushion the vulnerable families in Maringo.

Otieno was assistant coach to Stars under the tenures of coaches Bobby Williamson and Stanley Okumbi.
