Tusker FC would like to correct a misconception that has been created that the club has pulled out of the CECAFA Club Championship which was scheduled to kick off on August 1 in Dar es Salaam Tanzania.
Chairman Daniel Aduda has clarified Tusker as a team has not pulled out from the competition but is still waiting on the Federation’s official communication whether to travel to Dar es Salaam for the Championship.
Aduda says; “We received communication from the Football Kenya Federation through CEO Barry Otieno, informing us that we would represent the country at the Championships. However, the letter also informed us that they were negotiating with CECAFA to see if they can push the dates owing to the league engagements.”
“The letter also duly informed us that if they do not reach an amicable decision on the dates, then we would not be cleared to travel to Dar es Salaam. As it is, we have not yet received official communication in regards to our participation in the Championships. As a club, we will oblige to any direction that the Federation gives.”
