Agitated Kenyans send plea to the government to help bail out Harambee Stars with only six days before they face Ethiopia

Harambee Stars made good their threat as they trained and returned home with only six days remaining to the crucial Afcon qualifier against Ethiopia.

The squad of local based players, trained on Thursday under the watchful eye of coach Sebastien Migne at Utalii Hotel and are expected to return again on Friday as they prepare to depart for Addis Ababa on October 6.

FKF Media Liaison Officer Barry Otieno confirmed to Goal that they are yet to get the support from the government. “The squad trained and returned home. We are expecting them again on Friday. We also waiting to get tickets as the team needs to depart for Ethiopia on Saturday.”

The move has forced Kenyans to attack the government on social media with the hashtag #WhyAlwaysSportsKe, for neglecting the national team, that stands a good chance of reaching the 2019 Afcon finals, if they get a positive result in the two-legged affair against the Walya Antelopes.
