“Collins Sichenje had a successful repair of the right inguinal hernia on Sunday, October 4th. The midfielder had been experiencing prolonged pain and an abdominal ultrasound done revealed a hernia.
“Sichenje is currently recuperating and the medical team has advised that he will be out of action for six weeks,” a statement from Leopards website noted.
Sichenje joined Leopards from Green Commandos in August 2019 and has been a key member for the team under the guidance of Anthony Kimani.
