As exclusively reported by Goal.com last month, the stocky forward who represented Kenya during the 2012 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Kampala ditched the Awendo-based side to join Sofapaka.
The move has however, hit a snag after his former employers blocked the transfer claiming he still has a valid contract.
"I am not sure what Sony Sugar are up to. Last term I tried to extend my stay with them (Sony) but they could not upgrade my contract. Now the officials don't want to give me a release letter. The league kick-off is around the corner, and I request them to do me justice."
"I have served Sony Sugar very well and I feel that it is time to move on and advance my career. I want to move to Sofapaka because it is great clubs that has very experienced players that can help me develop as a player."
Agwanda was on the terraces as he watched his new side fall 1-0 to visiting Tanzanian side Azam FC on Sunday. Azam got the only goal of the match in the 60th minute when Tanzanian international Gaudence Mwaikimba scored from a penalty following a handball by Ugandan midfielder Abdalla Nyanzi.
When contacted, Sony Sugar Team Manager Nehemiah Licha claimed Agwanda had dishonored a binding contract.
"This is a complicated case and I hope the boy will eventually make a good choice (return to the club). That is all I can say for now."
Sony Sugar will start their league campaign with a tricky fixture away to newly promoted Bandari on February 16 while Sofapaka host Mathare United at City Stadium a day later.
