AFC Leopards players on a go-slow over arrears

Turmoil is rocking the den again after AFC Leopards players went on a go-slow on Tuesday to demand payment of salary arrears.

The boycott came as a section of former club officials called for a meeting of all club members on Saturday to kick out the current office and install a caretaker committee to run the affairs of the club.

The bulk of the playing unit failed to turn up for Tuesday’s training at the Kenya Teachers Training College in Gigiri, demanding payment of three months salary arrears.

Only 11 out of the 29 players turned up for training.

Team manager Willis Waliaula was at pains to convince the squad to take part in the morning drills.

“I have pleaded with the players for long. The officials keep making promises to me to settle their pay but they don’t keep their word.

“They have been taking me in circles and I’m equally contemplating resigning,” said Waliaula who is also owed  three month salary arrears.

The development come barely a week after Ingwe hired former Gor Mahia tactician Zdravko Logarusic to take over mantle .

Former club officials officials Sammy Maina(organizing secretary), Suleiman Khamis(treasurer) and Charles Irondanga(vice –chair City Hall Branch), blamed the Allan Kasavuli-led office of poor leadership .

The trio said that the current office has failed to address the problems bedeviling the club.
