FKF Premier League teams are bracing themselves up for tough times after the federation allegedly slashed the monthly grants from the initial 400,000 shillings monthly and now to a paltry 300,000 shillings.
The revelation was done by journalist Fred Arocho on his facebook page.It is reported that the new changes will be effective from Monday which is tomorrow.
This is a sad state of affairs really, considering the fact that even the 400,000 shillings from last season was still very little for the running of club affairs.
Clubs have had to beg from politicians who once in a while rescue them from the financial dilemma that they always face.Clubs like Gor Mahia and AFC Leopard's are usually the hardest hit when such scenario occurs.
It is still quite not clear why the grant has been slashed that much, but it is on record that betting company Betking pulled out towards the end of last season and the league therefore has no sponsor currently.
