to release striker Stephen Wakhanya to the national U20 team, Division One side
West Kenya Sugar has finally obliged and let the youngster travel to Nairobi to
join the team currently shaping up for a second leg second round reverse tie
against Egypt on Saturday 11 August 2012.
No reason not to release him
Early, the team’s Secretary General Fred Wakhisi has complained in the manner of approach hence the management’s resistance in releasing him
-They kept talking to the player directly asking him to board a bus and join the team’s training. This was very improper – it is as if he did not belong to a club and it looked like he was being stolen, said outspoken Wakhisi to futaa.com
-But we have now received an official correspondence asking for his release. This being the proper manner of doing things, we have no reason not to release him. As we speak he is already on his way to Nairobi.
The national team Coach Stanley Okumbi had stated that his camp was short on strikers.
Timothy Otieno who started the first leg tie away in Egypt is featuring for his school – Kakamega High School at the Airtel Rising Stars National Championship in Mombasa.
The same applies to Meshack Karani of Kariobangi Sharks who is with St. Anthony, Kitale.
Wakhanya was part of the squad but dropped before the team went to Cairo together with four other players.
