In an interview with NTV, coach Dylan Kerr admitted that he indeed went an entire month with no electricity and no water for a month.
He said that the landlord decided to cut off electricity and water but did not say why. In terms of salaries, Kerr confirmed that he was always paid in time with the exception of the months of September and October.
Kerr says he remained professional and did not let it affect his performance. But he was affected when his players were not paid on time because it affected their performance.
Kerr stated that clubs, the KPL, FKF and the ministry needs to get their house in order.
Kerr went on to thank the fans and stated that he was honoured to be beloved by the fans. He likes everything about Kenya and had a great time.
Ngala rubbishes allegations
But Gor Mahia Deputy Secretary General Ronald Ngala rubbished allegations.”We used to pay him Sh150,000 for rent and later reduced it to Sh100,000.
“The coach had requested that we (club) give him the money and he finds a place to stay and we obliged. So if he chose a place where there is a frequent power outage, how is that our problem? It did not concern us as long as he was performing on the pitch.” said Ngala to goal.com
Ngala went on to say that the allegations were an attempt to make officials look bad.
“I just feel it is a way of making us look bad when in the real sense we are not; if he had a better offer he could have just said so.” he concluded.
