I choose peace, departing Kamura tells Leopards family

Kenyan defender Robinson Kamura has officially confirmed his departure from Football Kenya Federation Premier League side, AFC Leopards.

Citizen Digital understands the former Mathare United defender has agreed to join KCB after a fallout with Leopards coach Patrick Aussems.

A source close to the player revealed that since it became clear he had no future at the den, he was open to talks with several clubs and has finally agreed to join bankers.

“On several occasions, he made it clear that leaving AFC Leopards was not his immediate desire but given how the environment turned out especially last season, he had no option but to leave.”

In his farewell message, the centre-back said he ‘chose peace’ as he wished the local giants the best.

“I am leaving a team I love and a team I’ll forever hold dear to my heart. I’ll never forget the moments we shared together, the end doesn’t define my stay,” Kamura posted on Facebook.

“I would have loved to stay at this beautiful club but so many things transpired and I chose peace because the club is bigger than any individual and it deserves respect.

“To AFC Leopards’ lovely fans; there is no love like your love, the passion you have for the club is so enormous and it drives the team in a way. I wish you knew I enjoyed everything about you and you made me love the club even more and it was easy through your support to play for the badge,” further said Kamura in his goodbye message.

When Aussems was appointed, he took the armband from Kamura and gave it to Isaac Kipyegon who still is the captain.

Elvis Rupia, who has since left AFC Leopards for Bisha FC of Saudi Arabia, was appointed as assistant captain.
