Kenyan Coach James Nandwa has expelled two of his players from camp for escaping from the team hotel on Tuesday night. Winger Paul Were and midfielder Kevin Omondi are the victims of Nandwa’s sword after they went partying on Tuesday night after the 2-0 win over South Sudan.
According to reliable sources, the duo sneaked out of camp at Sky Sports Hotel in Kireka and went partying the whole night after receiving their bonuses. To make matters worse, they brought ladies with them to the hotel an act Coach James Nandwa has described as disgraceful and unacceptable. “It’s true they have been expelled”, Nandwa told Kawowo Sports.
“Kevin (Omondi) and Paul (Were) won’t be with us for the rest of the tournament after they sneaked out last night and brought with them some ladies in camp, a behaviour that is so disgraceful and unacceptable while on such an important mission”.
Kevin Omondi had a wonderful game against South Sudan and assisted both goals as Harambe Stars picked their first victory of the campaign while Paul Were lasted just 58 minutes.
The two players are expected to fly back to Nairobi with further punishments awaiting them according to the Federation Kenya Football (FKF) chairman Francis Nyamweya.
“We have indefinitely suspended the two players from the national team and we are going to punish them more in their club football as well so that it can act as a lesson to the rest”. Kenyan players received a total of UShs 9 million (Kshs. 289,784). Click here to view Kenya's remaining fixtures and previous results
