Today we pay tribute to
Kenya’s greatest central defender ever. Fondly nicknamed the Six Million Dollar Man after the lead character of a 1980s television thriller series of the same name, Bobby was the kind of player only injury or age could remove from Gor Mahia and Harambee Stars. The Number Four jersey was his for keeps.
John “Bobby” Ogolla became one of the most reknown personalities in the increasingly popular Kenya Premier League. With his distinctive grey hair and booming voice, the well spoken Bobby who is eloquent in both English and Kiswahili is always an interesting interview.
