Football Kenya Federation (FKF) President Sam Nyamweya has moved in to settle part of the allowances owed to the national team players and technical bench in Kampala.
Harambee Stars contingent in Kampala refused to train on Friday and had threatened not to honor the highly anticipated Cecafa final (against Uganda Cranes) unless their pending allowances totaling 2.3 million were cleared.
And as earlier reported by Goal.com, Nyamweya, who had promised to arrest the go slow, answered the SOS by visiting the team in camp alongside Sports Minister Ababu Namwamba, and settling for a down payment.
"I am giving out Sh700,000 to you. The rest (1.6 million) will be paid after we receive the prize money from the tournament organizers and sponsors."
"I also want to assure you that no player or technical bench member will be victimized and we are looking forward to beating Uganda and clinching this (Cecafa) title."
As finalists in this competition, Kenya is assured of 1.7 shillings in prize money. This could however, rise by 0.8 million if Kenya beat Uganda in the final set to kick-off at 6pm.
