Matasi: Harambee Stars Players Never Received Ksh 250,000 After AFCON Win As Promised

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.

According to Patrick Matasi who was by then the teams first choice goalkeeper, the promise was never honoured.The same issue arose in 2021 after Victor Wanyama's who was by then the teams captain detailed on the same.After this issue, a number of Kenyans have gone on to their social media platforms to share their views on the same and below is a sample of their reactions:
