The players affected include lanky midfielder Hajji Mwachoki, goalkeeper John Njenga Mbugua, defender Evans Olutecho and Andrew Kulecho
Thika United head coach John Kamau has begun rebuilding his side after a successful run in the 2012 campaign by releasing four players.
The axed include lanky midfielder Hajji Mwachoki, custodian John Njenga Mbugua, defender Evans Olutecho and Andrew Kulecho.
In an interview with Goal.com, Kamau said that Mwachiko and Olutecho have seen through their contract and the club was not willing to renew while the shot stopper and Kulecho have been released owing to ‘football reasons.’
“It is true we have released the four and we wish them well in their careers. We want to have a lean and efficient squad.”
For Mwachoki it is rather cruel turn of events after changing club three times. The light skinned attacking midfielder joined Gor Mahia from Thika, but his stay only lasted six months.
Early this year, he joined Chemelil, but cut short his stay in the June transfer window to return to his 'home' club where he has been shown the door.
The 'milk' men finished the 2012 campaign at position five with 46 points.
