Ex-Tusker FC players' seeks for Kenya FA's intervention over unpaid salaries

Led by former international Dennis Mukaisi, who has since joined Division One side Rangers, the players are accusing the brewers of breach of contract
Former Tusker players are complaining that the team failed to pay them after they were released last year in accordance with their terminated contracts and have asked for the intervention of Football Kenya Federation.

Last year, the brewers laid off thirteen players despite successfully retaining the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) title after a tough campaign that almost ended in failure.

Led by former international Dennis Mukaisi, the players are accusing Tusker of breach of contract.

"Our agreement clearly states that we are entitled to two months salary when our contracts are terminated. In this case, we were only paid one month's salary and all efforts to get an explanation from the club have all but proved futile," Mukaisi told Goal.com.

According to the player who has since joined Division One club Rangers, they were supposed to be paid their salaries for December and January but only received for the former month.

However, Charles Obiny a Director at Tusker, dismissed the allegations and said they don't owe the players any arrears as their payments were made as required.

"When they were released, we paid them for November and December. In January, our new players had already come on board and so we were not obligated to pay those we had released."

Apart from Mukaisi, other top players who were released by Tusker are Obadiah Ndege, Crispin Olando, Patrick Kagogo and Andrew Murunga, Nigerian import Joseph Emeka, defender David Nyanzi, Fredrick Ajwang, Isaac Otieno, Charles Odete and Allan Katerega.
