The Briton coach has for the first time gave his side of the story that saw the Ugandan left back sneak out for South Africa, where he is finalizing a transfer deal with Kaizer Chiefs.
Kerr says Walusimbi and his agent acted wrongly by sneaking out of the country and that action should be taken against them. “Walusimbi, his agent and Kaizer Chiefs will all be held accountable for their actions which was illegal and very unprofessional,” Kerr told Goal in an interview.
“My chairman and CEO are not to blame nor myself because Walusimbi acted immorally probably on advice of his agent, who I will personally act on and make sure that his license is revoked.
“Both Walusimbi and his agent have let my team and staff down not once but twice now because they did the same when we played against Esperance and we lost the match because he was not available.”
Kerr also said it was the right of fans to question the player’s absence. “The fans are right to point fingers as any football fan has an opinion but the fact remains Walusimbi is contracted to Gor Mahia.
“His agent acted for financial greed and Kaizer Chiefs think they can get him for pennies but worst of all acted illegally against Caf and Fifa rules. Rule 18 clearly states that a club intending to conclude with a professional player must inform the players club in writing before entering into negotiations.
“Walusimbi is contracted to Gor Mahia until 2020 and Chiefs have not written."
Chiefs are said to have picked on the impressive Walusimbi to help strengthen their leaking defence. Walusimbi has been a key player for Gor Mahia especially this campaign, where K’Ogalo are taking part in the Caf Confederation Cup.
