Like the Kenya Defence forces arriving in Kismayu, the squad has landed at Sofapaka's Pangani base and the results are coming out fast.
All the joy riders, the liabilities, the useless entities have been smoked out.
And a warning given to their pals.... Run for your lives.
There are players at the club who really have no business being here.
I will mention three players, Hashim Mukhwana, Demonde Selenga and Collins Okoth.
Of the recent departures, I feel for Hashim Mukhwana, as he is not a bad footballer, but has paid the price for just not being good enough for Sofapaka.
His displays were inconsistent and he never got a run going either due to injury or other issues.
A player with promise but no end results had to go.
To Collins Okoth.
Okoth was and in my opinion, still is, a very capable midfield player. He can do what he wants with the energy and strength he possesses. He has a good passing range, can score the odd goal and his tackling skills are known to all.
That aside, he was a guy who had more negative than positive going for him. It is like he had a magnet somewhere busy attracting negativity.
In the end, his stay at Sofapaka was one that never took off, thanks to his own shenanigans as well as the influence of one Francis Kimanzi, I have been told.
As much as I rate him, he has always been presented in a negative fashion and in the end, he really just had to go.
Worst signing ever
Demonde Selenga in my opinion was the worst Sofapaka signing in the Premier League era.
He has really not brought anything to the party and I have no idea why he was signed in the first place. If it was Salim Ali's idea that he join the club, then I am glad he is gone as well.
Selenga was not a bad player for Gor Mahia or AFC Leopards, but at Sofa, he really highlighted the need to have not just good players, but strong and capable ones.
He was a joy rider at best and I am not having any nightmares seeing him go.
As for the other guys, I will not speak but look forward to those in the pipeline, the likes of Joseph Nyaga, John Onami who are still at the club and you ask why Sofapaka is struggling?
Give hall free hand
For Sofapaka to go back to past glories, others still have to go and there are plenty, at a club that has come to be associated with housing players that do not deserve to be there.
New head coach Stewart Hall has to be given a chance to cull more and more players in the side to give the club a competitive edge.
I am rubbing my hands in excitement..
