Kenya’s history making Daniel Adongo, the first Kenyan to play in America’s National Football League (NFL), is now homeless, and into drugs in the United States.
The former star is living what can only be described as a miserable life after blowing multi-million contracts in the US.
A video of the man who at one point had a lucrative Sh. 200 million deal with NFL’s Indianapolis Colts shows the man in a destitute state. The video was posted by popular blogger Robert Alai.
It shows him Daniel Adongo looking tattered and out of mind.
Apparently, his troubles are compounded by accusations of domestic violence. He was put under criminal investigation for domestic violence five years ago. “Consequently, the incident cost the linebacker playing time, leading his team (Colts) to waive him one week after the second police call on December 10, 2015, and ruled out of the match against Jacksonville,” a report said. The police report further said that in a woman had told police that she was afraid of Adongo and did not want him to return to his residence but “was not forthcoming with any information in reference to these incidents.”
She indicated that arguments had occurred over the past several months in 2015. Adongo went to the Fishers Police Department while officers were speaking with the woman and said he would not stay at the home that evening and was going to end the relationship, according to the police report.
On December 10, 2015 police returned to the home after Dawn Monks, who said she is a friend of the woman, told them she had received text messages from the woman reading “911” and “Help.” Monks told police that Adongo had previously kicked open the bathroom door, grabbed the woman by the throat and held her underwater in the bathtub, according to the report.
She said Adongo had previously punched multiple holes in the walls and damaged appliances, the woman’s car, furniture and cell phones.
Before making the mega deal to NFL, Adongo played either as a lock or a flanker, and last played Super Rugby for the Southern Kings in the 2013 Super Rugby season. He has now spiraled into a cult, drugs and crime.
