Uganda Player Stranded In Kenya After Unpaid Months

Ugandan striker Boris Kwezi says that he has had enough in Kenya and seeks return back home.

Kwezi joined Chemili Sugar FC from then Big League side Water FC before he was acquired by Nzoia Sugar FC.

Despite scoring four goals as four league goals as Nzoia retained KPL status, Kwezi has found the spell intolerable.

“I would rather come back home,” Kwezi told The-SportsNation in an exclusive interview.

“I have gone six months without salary, the way these guys are treating us is like we are slaves.

“You go to demand for your salary but they tell you that ‘you are a foreigner we will pay you when we get your money because you can’t go anywhere.”

Kwezi narrates that he has been helped by fans and fellow players to survive during these trying times.

He adds: “It’s hard for some (Ugandan) players here to talk because they don’t want to be ashamed back home.”

“Some fans are the ones who are helping me, I was chased out of the house two months ago by the landlord due to no payments so a fan called me and told me to stay with him at his place. Things are tough.

“You spend the all week without getting anything to eat from the club but they expect you to come for training every day. They don’t care if you have eaten or not.

“A coach comes to the training ground and he tells you; ‘today am not playing with foreigners, you can go and play aside.’ You can finish a week while you have trained for one hour with the team.

Kwezi says that he has been offered a new contract on the condition that his salary is reduced.
