Nzoia Sugar FC racing to clear players’ salary arrears, says club boss Kadenge

Nzoia Sugar FC Chairman Evans Kadenge says the club has begun clearing the salary arrears owed to its playing unit.

According to Kadenge, they have so far paid the arrears backdating to May last year and hopes to settle the pending dues in due course.

“We had arrears which we have backdated to last year and our players who are on the company’s payroll, have been receiving their salaries,” he said.

Meanwhile the club boss says the new team bus; donated to them by Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa will help the team cut on its travel logistics for away matches.

The Ksh 7 million 52-seater bus was a promise made in 2017 by the CS and which was fulfilled this week.

Kadenge believes with the turn of events, the team will be angling to challenge for the title next term.

The Bungoma-based side issued a walkover against Bandari after failing to travel to Mombasa on January 4 due to financial constraints.

“The new bus has come at a good time. We now need to cater only for fuel and maintenance costs in order to honour our away matches,” Kadenge told Citizen Digital.

“We thank the CS for this kind gesture which has offered a long term solution to the challenges we had in travelling. Our focus will now be on winning the league and taking back Nzoia to the glory of yesteryears,” he added.
