AFC Leopards Officials Playing Russian Roulette


There seems to be no end in sight for troubled AFC Leopards who have been dominating local headlines for all the wrong the reasons.

Just a day after the club’s Chairman Allan Kasavuli and treasurer Esther Luvembe resigned from their positions and a 12-man interim committee appointed to take over the running of the club, Leopards’ Deputy Secretary General, Asava Kadima, has written to the Kenya Premier League dismissing the move.

Kadima termed the appointments as ‘unconstitutional’ while reiterating that the club’s executive committee was fully in charge, and no such interim appointments had been sanctioned.

“Kasavuli duly resigned as AFC Leopards chair, and therefore he is not allowed to sign or transact any business on behalf of the club,” Kadima said.

“The National Executive Committee will be meeting Thursday to deliberate on the next course of action and we shall notify you on who will be stepping in as the club’s interim chairman,” added Kadima.

Politician Amin Walji was appointed to head the 12-man interim caretaker committee which also includes former club chairman Alex Ole Magelo, club ambassador Charles Bukeko ‘Papa Shirandula’, club legend George Sunguti and Duncan Angote among others. 

“In the meantime, please note that the club has not sanctioned any caretaker committee because this goes against the constitution of the club,” Kadima’s statement said.

Kadima reiterated that the current executive members are capable of overseeing the running of the club until the next elections are held.

AFC Leopards have been in a financial mess since their sponsor Mumias Sugar withdrew their sponsorship after plunging into a financial crisis. 

With the ongoing Russian roulette at the club, there’s nothing indicating that the mess will be solved any time soon.

And That's thesteifmastertake!!
