A number of KPL clubs are struggling to take care of their wage bills after the league lost its title sponsor early in January

AFC Leopards players downed tools on Wednesday demanding for unpaid salaries and allowances.

Goal understands that players are yet to receive their pay for March; something that forced them to sit out of training sessions on Wednesday.

Less than 10 players turned up at the training ground but did not go through their paces as they demanded for salaries to be paid in full.

According to sources, who talked to Goal, the management has promised to ‘pay’ the arrears by Thursday, but the players have vowed they will not train nor feature in their league match against Zoo Kericho this weekend.

Other than the salary issue, Ingwe is also in the race to find a new manager with caretaker coach Dennis Kitambi set to exit The Den on May 8.

The Tanzanian, who took over the team following the sacking of Robert Matano, is set to link up with his former boss Stewart Hall in Bangladesh.
