Wazito rubbishes player abandonment allegations

Wazito FC has risen to defend itself against accusations that it has neglected their injured player Stanley Ndung'u who underwent surgery on injury he sustained in 2016 against Oserian.

Wazito clarified that this is not an exluded case insisting that such cases of injuries have been registered and solved within the shortest time possible before. Some of the players with the same injury as Stanley included Steve Ogolla and Aggrey Okwemba. Okwemba got injured on 15th of March 2015 while on loan from Mathare FC to Wazito FC. 

The club in its defence explained that it already made arrangements and flew Okwemba to India for surgery on 20th of Feb 2016 and has since recuperated and he is back to the field of play.

Ndung'u was treated locally and has also fully recovered, the club continued in its defence.

Visa, doctor for Ndung'u

-Wazito FC is in the process of ensuring Stanley gets treatment as fast as possible and while we acknowledge he should have been treated immediately, the club has not abandoned him. The club has already secured a visa, a hospital and a doctor for Stanley (all of which are in Stanley’s possession) and should be flying out as soon as we conclude on his expenses. It is also important to note that Stanley is in our books and as such, receives all allowances just like the other active players, the statement read in part.

Wazito enjoy a relative good run in the National Super League campaign and will tackle Police FC on July 26. They have also qualified for the quarters in the Shield tournament.
