-There have been a number of departures, I can confirm that of Benard (Otieno) and Mike (Isabwa) at the moment, there could be more. But as I say we are capable of filling the voids created, We will head to the grass root for that exercise, there is plenty of talent and we will be filling them soon and let you know, Manoah told futaa.
