Goal.com understands that Vihiga players were stranded in Majengo Market for the better part of Friday morning ahead of their planned journey to Machakos County-venue for their weekend game.

"It is tough; we are trying to talk with our leaders here hoping to get the money to help us travel. So far, it is negative, but we hope things will be better. The governor is not reachable at the moment; it is a shame," a source close to the team told Goal.

Our efforts to reach the Vihiga County Communications Director Victor Wetende were futile.
