TOBBY 101       l'Orch Leslas Show                                  Tobby Oduor - Hockey Star Pts 1 & 2


This single, which turned up on the CD&LP.com website in February 2016, celebrates hockey player Tobias Oduor. In a sport then largely dominated by member’s of Kenya’s Sikh community, Oduor had the prowess to make the national team and was part of the squad that placed second in the 1974 African Cup of Nations tournament, held in Cairo.


In later life, he revived the dormant Kenya Ladies Hockey Association, playing a key role in encouraging women into the sport. His actions, though, were often at loggerheads with the Kenya Hockey Union, an organisation that presided over a decline in the sport that began in the 1980s.
