Waruinge represented Kenya in many international championships winning many medals before turning professional in Japan where he was nicknamed 'Nakayama'.

 While in Japan, he was also involved in the hospitality business where he operated a hotel. Waruinge, who is the first African boxer to win the coveted Val Barker trophy at the 1968 Olympics Games, died at his Lanet home in the outskirts of Nakuru City on the wee hours of Wednesday.

His wife, Mary Ndeti, said Waruinge, 77, was a” loving and caring husband.”

Boxing Association of Kenya's first Vice President Isaac Mbote also confirmed the new development. 

"As a federation, we condone with the family of the fallen legend boxer. He did Kenya proud from the sixties to the seventies. May his soul Rest In Eternal Peace," said Mbote.
