Chemelil Sugar forward, George Mandela is missing in action with barely hours to the start of the 2018 Kenyan Premier League season.

The Millers have a match with immediate former champions Tusker, Mandela’s former home, but the young striker has since gone AWOL and will most likely not feature against his former employer.

The Ugandan was part of the 14 players released by Tusker last season before he landed at Chemelil Sugar last January.

But Mandela disappeared from Chemelil Sugar’s radar last Sunday and has never been seen since then.  

“The players were told not to travel home because there was a friendly match coming up (last) Sunday, but he (Mandela) traveled home nonetheless and he’s never showed up since then,” a source within the club told Goal.

Coach Patrick Odhiambo has since struck Mandela off his plans with Wilberforce Okumu being called up for Tusker’s assignment.

Chemelil Sugar will host Tusker in the first match of the season this Saturday.
