According to Goal’s report, a letter addressed to one of the injured players read, “This is to advise you that your contract with Western Stima FC has been terminated with effect from February 20th, 2020.
“In view of the following, you will be paid your dues up to and including February 20, 2020, less statutory deductions and one month’s net salary in lieu of notice to your Stima Stacco account.”
An24.net understands that the affected players are David Ojwang, Luke Ochieng, David Omengo and Kelvince Ochieng.
Club Chairman, Laban Jobita said, “We have a lot of issues in the company and they are really trying hard to make sure Western Stima are accommodated among the things they are doing.”
