For quite some time now, Kenyan football has been filled with many problems some of which include financial as well as leadership.Over their last AFCON appearance which was back in 2019, the national team Harambee Stars had a good outing which saw them secure one win over their East African rivals Tanzania and two losses to the eventual finalists Algeria and Senegal.
Before the start of the tournament, a promise was made that each Harambee Stars player would receive a total of Ksh 250,000 for every win.Following their win over Tanzania, each player was expected to receive the amount but latest reports indicate that three years later the payment has not yet been made.
