Harambee Starlets has suffered another setback ahead of Cosafa women’s championship in Zimbabwe.
Coach Richard Kanyi has been dented a blow following the withdrawal of defender Irene Ogutu for the Bulawayo trip.
Ogutu, who is nursing a knee injury, joins forward Esse Akida who pulled out of Starlets squad to concentrate on club duties ahead of a trip to the USA.
