Kenyan Premier League side Gor Mahia captain Kenneth Muguna claims that the club should respect players by paying their salaries.
Gor Mahia have been struggling financially since they lost their sponsors Sportpesa at the beginning of the season.
As a result, therefore, the players are crying foul as the club continues to frustrate them with the last payment, a paltry sh3000 coming two weeks ago.
Although the club’s management promised the playing unit their pay before the end of last week but nothing happened, and it is the reason behind Muguna’s grievance.
“It is high time Gor Mahia started respecting the players because we are the reason why the team exists,” Kenneth Muguna was quoted by Goal.
“They keep lying to us about our payment which should not be the case.”
“We have given our best despite the situation and we are comfortably leading the Kenyan Premier League (KPL), so why is the management not treating us with the respect we deserve?”
“Why always give us false promises? we are human beings and this hurts, we need better treatment, we just want our pay,” he added.
The 24-year-old midfielder further said that the club should stop treating them like animals because they have basic needs that need attention.
“I think it is high time for the office to stop playing games with us,” he told Nairobi Times.
“We are living in people’s houses and we have families to feed. If at all you can’t be honest with players.”
“It is better you release all of them and find the ones who can earn your respect. You guys are treating players like animals,” he added.
According to reports from Kenya, Gor Mahia players have not been since last year.
Gor Mahia are still on the top of the log with 54 points from 23 games played followed by Kakamega Homeboyz with 47 points.
