December 6th, 2015 1 min read


Another Kenyan footballer has hit out at his foreign based colleagues, whom he claims are not assisting local based players earn professional deals abroad.

Former Harambee Stars forward Francis Ouma made this claim on his social media page last week, in a move that attracted varied reactions and comments.

“It is about that time our game needs us to stop tribalism and try lifting each other,” the former Mathare United and Sofapaka striker said on his Facebook post, in a message translated by Nairobi News.

The 27 year old went on; “Let us not be the type who only want to do well while your colleagues are suffering and yet, you have the opportunity to change their lives.”

Ouma’s claims come barely two months after another Kenyan player, Jamal Mohamed, also similarly criticized his colleagues abroad for the same reason.

Despite keeping the message general, whispers have it that Ouma might have been referring to Italian based star MacDonald Mariga, who is currently unattached.
