Former AFC Leopards captain Martin Imbalambala is in need of our help. The former midfielder has gone partially blind and requires specialized treatment to help him regain his sight.

Imbalambala first lost his sight 2018 and underwent a scan at Kikuyu Hospital. He felt a sharp forehead headache, and before he could see a doctor he had already lost his ability to see.

Despite efforts by his family to get him treated, things have not been easy for the once towering midfielder who also featured for Vihiga United.

He has now come out to plead for help from well wishers to enable him get more specialized treatment. According to him, his failure to get constant medical attention has had a huge toll on him.

He last got medical attention two months ago and has been unable to go for more check ups due to lack of funds.

“The last time, I got medical attention was two months ago at Sabatia Eye Hospital. I was given medicine which helped me a bit. I was to get back for more checkups in April but could not raise the Ksh4000 which was needed” he told Goal.

Imbalambala hopes that he will soon be okay so as to be able to fend for his family. Now based in his Chavakhali home, he has called on fans and well-wishers to help him out.

“I am requesting my fans and well-wishers to help me get the money for treatment, it is the only thing I am desperate for right now.”

Apart from Leopards and Vihiga United, Imbalambala also turned out for Kakamega Homeboyz and Nakumatt FC (Now Mt. Kenya United)
