Underwhelmed by their dismal performance in the opening half of the season, Sony Sugar have started getting rid of dead wood by axing four players from the club.
The 2006 Kenya Premier League champions have terminated the contracts of goalkeeper Lucas Indeche, defender Robert Ouma, midfielder Evans Wandera, and striker Steve Biko. Indeche joined Sony in January 2014 and was their No. 1 keeper but he has been relegated to the bench by Jairus Adika.
Ouma and Wandera have failed to break into the Millers’ defence and midfield respectively with the likes of Joseph Omweri and Victor Ademba preferred instead.
Biko on the other hand has barely got a kick despite Sony struggling to find the back of the net having scored only 10 goals this season. Andrew Sekayombya and Samuel Onyango are the club’s topscorers with two goals each.
Zedekiah Otieno’s side have handed Gor Mahia Youth Team player Amos Nondi trials with a view of signing the skipper should he impress. Zico and his transfer team are looking to find Indeche’s replacement together with a central defender, an offensive left midfielder and a proven goal scorer.
They currently lie 12th on the log with 15 points from 15 matches. They will open their campaign in the second half of the season with an away tie against Ushuru on Saturday June 27.
