Tusker FC midfielder Brian Osumba is facing a long layoff in the 2016 Kenyan Premier League season following a motorbike accident in Nairobi on Friday that left him with a broken leg.

Nairobi News understands that the CPA student at Strathmore University was heading for an evening classes when the accident occurred. Details of the accident still remain unclear.

“One of our players, Brian Osumba broke his leg on Friday after what he thought to be a small accident on his way to school,” the club announced on its official Facebook page.

Tusker captain James Situma also confirmed the incident.

“It is sad what seemed to be a small motorbike accident on your way to evening classes has left you injured. We wish you a quick recovery,” he wrote on Facebook.

The former KCB midfielder, who is also member of the national team, was expected to feature prominently for Tusker this season as the brewers seek to reclaim the league title from Gor Mahia.
