Kenyan sensation, Collins Sichenje, reflects on his dream come true as he continues to shine with the national team.
“Last season, I played a crucial role in helping the team avoid relegation. However, it seems that things are not going well at the club,” Okiring told Nation last week, regarding the club’s woes.
“The newly-acquired players have decided to boycott training demanding their unpaid dues from last season. Moreover, they are only provided with one meal a day which is not enough to sustain them.”

The Vihiga-based outfit saw off title rivals Gaspo Women 2-1 in a dead rubber match played at Police Sacco Stadium.
The club was suspended from the league for one month last season after some players complained of sexual advances being made at them by some officials with a number of the club’s bosses resigning.
It is believed the Trans Nzoia county government was interested in taking over the struggling side put were put off by a hefty price tag placed on the club.
