Harambee Stars coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee is reportedly stranded in India after the Kenyan government suspended passenger flights to and from the Asian country.

Coach Mulee who went to India with 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 the media 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.”

The government last week announced a suspension of flights from India for 14 days following a surge in positive Covid-19 cases in the country.

Passengers transiting through India are also required to observe a 14-day mandatory period that has to be monitored by Kenya’s health officials.

However, despite the situation, Coach Mulee has said that he was fit and ready to lead Kenya in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

The competition was slated to kick-off in June, but the Confederation of African Football (Caf) has rescheduled the matches to commence in October, citing the challenges brought about surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic.
