Rugby Coach Benjamin Ayimba has finally been laid to rest but like reports earlier indicated the burial was filled with tension.
During the burial, it was reported that Actress Gloria Moraa who is one of Ayimba’s baby mamas was allegedly barred from accessing the ceremony by police as directed by the rugby star’s sister Irene Ayimba.
Actress Sandra Dacha, who is a close friend of Moraa, claims Ayimba’s two kids were barred from attending their deceased dad’s send-off in Siaya.
“Their only mistake was to come to bury their father Benjamin Ayimba. The way they’ve been treated, my God!
“I don’t care how I have been treated but I care about how they treated these young superstars. Sasa Mnabagua watoto na ni DAMU MOJA,” Dacha posted on her social media platforms.
Speaking to K24 Digital, Gloria said there was no confrontation between her and Ayimba’s sister.
“When I got to the burial, I was met with a police officer who was told I would show up with pangas and guns. I heard the sister was looking for me during the burial, but we didn’t have any confrontation even after,” Moraa shared.
Moraa says that Ayimba’s sister was her friend at one point. “She was once my friend but once she heard the news that I had a child, she chose to hate and bash me any chance she got. I heard she said I was not meant to be a wife, but just a clandestine”.
Benjamin and Moraa had a sour relationship after she dragged him to court over child support.
The 44-year-old was a veteran rugby player and coach who is celebrated for guiding Kenya to its first-ever World Rugby Sevens Series Cup title in 2016 at the Singapore 7s.
He died on Friday evening, May 21 at Kenyatta National Hospital where he was receiving treatment for cerebral malaria.
Our efforts to reach Irene Ayimba ended in vain as her phone did not go through by the time of publishing this article.
