Collins 'Gattuso' Okoth, Hashim Mukhwana, Kanamuli Kapilima and Hakim Ssekuba had their contracts terminated by the 2009 league champions
Sofapaka President Elly Kalekwa says the club has cleared the dues of all the four players released last month.
Collins 'Gattuso' Okoth, Hashim Mukhwana, Kanamuli Kapilima and Hakim Ssekuba had their contracts terminated by the 2009 league champions.
"We need to put the record straight. I didn't sack anyone. The new coach (Stewart hall) made the decision that he doesn't need the players. He (Hall) cited indiscipline and lack of commitment amongst the quartet.”
At the same time, Okoth and Mukhwana are claiming delayed allowances and salaries and both are considering instigating legal action against the club.
“This is not true. For Okoth, we officially signed him at the end of August (2012) and paid him a lump some amount as signing fee. He was released in mid-September when we had even paid him advance salary for that particular month.”
“I believe it wasn't asking for too much for him to wait until end month to be cleared. He has even come back to apologize for the outburst.”
“Mukhwana should be thankful to me. He knows what I have done for him since his first stint (in 2008), when he won the Kenyan Premier League title at this club. We have issues to sort out, and he needs to come without emotions and we will sit down and clear that out.”
Mukhwana’s second spell has been dismal. He has not played for several games and never showed an intention to work hard and reclaim his position at right back.”
