Ulinzi Stars have explained why it was easy for them to let go striker Ezekiel Otuoma

Ezekiel Otuoma joined Western Stima recently after spending two seasons with Ulinzi Stars.

The forward has been touted as one of the best talents but he has not managed to show his potential in full. With the Caf Confederations close, many expected the attacker to be involved, but the Soldiers let him go.

Ulinzi Stars head coach Benjamin Nyangweso has revealed to Goal why the player was released, "Otuoma is a good player who is really talented and we loved him. However, he spent most of his time in the doctor's room with nagging knee injury putting him out of our squad regularly. That’s why we have decided to let him leave.”

The Soldiers are preparing for the continental assignment and last week they defeated Muhoroni Youth 2-0 in a pre-season friendly match.
