Harambee Stars coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee is among dozens of Kenyans stranded in India in the wake of the government’s decision to suspended passenger flights to and from the Asian country, Nation Sport can exclusively reveal.
The veteran coach, 53, and his elder brother have been receiving treatment at the Apollo hospital in New Delhi for the past three weeks.
“I thank God we have recovered and thank Kenyans for the support and prayers,” he told Nation Sport on phone from India on Thursday.
“The doctors discharged us and we have been in touch with the (Kenya) High Commission here while waiting for (Health Cabinet Secretary) Mutahi Kagwe to share the travel arrangements so we can return home.”
Kagwe last week announced a suspension of flights from India for 14 days following a surge in positive Covid-19 cases in the country.
He also announced passengers transiting through India would be required to observe a 14-day mandatory period that has to be monitored by Kenya’s health officials.
