Ushuru Players ‘Demand’ Two Months Pay

Exactly two seasons ago, a section of Ushuru FC players complained of mismanagement and blamed Head Coach Ken Kenyatta for his style of leadership terming it as the reason for their poor run in the second phase of the league.

Things have not really changed since and now it has emerged that the players are owed two-month salary arrears by the club.

One of the club’s players, who sought anonymity, told that the situation hasn’t changed.

“We have not been paid for two months now and the coach still expects us to go for training yet there is no explanation given for the delay,” said the source.

KRA Pin numbers

However Ushuru FC coach Ken Kenyatta says all players who have complied with the club’s policies have been paid. He says all players at the club must have the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) pin to be paid their salaries.

Kenyatta said: “All players who applied for KRA pins were paid. The few who did not comply to this have had their salaries withheld till they get their pin numbers.

“We don’t have a reputation of delaying players’ salaries and the players have to follow the rules.”

The player however said their accounts had not been credited and nobody is talking about the matter. With only four wins in the first leg, the Taxmen will be keen to improve their performance in the second leg which kicks off this weekend. They take on Sony Sugar on Saturday, July 2, at Nyayo Stadium.
