The FKF Player Status Committee has ruled in favor of former Sofapaka goalkeeper Wycliffe Kasaya, following a complaint brought to the Committee by the player on wrongful termination of his contract.

His immediate former club, Sofapaka, has also been directed to incur a KES 1.6 Million cost.

“The player had a fixed term contract with the club running from June 2, 2018, to May 31, 2020. The last salary the player received was for the month of September 2018,” read part of the ruling by the FKF Player Status Committee.

“Having considered the player’s complaint, his submissions and those of the club, the committee’s decision is that there was wrongful and unfair constructive dismissal of the Player’s contract with Sofapaka FC on the 8th November 2018,”

“Consequently, upon the finding above, the Committee makes the following orders:

  1. A declaration is hereby issued that the player is a free agent competent and at liberty to enter into any contract with any club in the Kenyan Premier League without the need for any release letter from his former club, Sofapaka FC;
  2. An order is hereby issued directing the club to pay the player KES 1,610,000 comprising of unpaid salary for October 2018, three months’ salary in lieu of notice and compensation for the balance of the term of the prematurely terminated contract,” continued the ruling.

Kasaya had in the off-season transfer window penned a deal with top-tier side Posta Rangers.
