Ulinzi Stars chairman Lt. Col Erick Oloo has confirmed that Stephen Waruru has resigned from the Kenya Defense Force (KDF) after the forward revealed on Saturday 18 November that he is quitting the side after nine years with the Nakuru based club.
The Kenyan international scored twice against Tusker FC on Saturday in what he later revealed was his last match for the club. He is reportedly set to join Tusker FC although AFC Leopards is thought to be interested in acquiring the ex-military man.
Speaking to Futaa.com, Oloo confirmed that Waruru has stepped down from his military duties. He went ahead to wish the forward best of luck should he opt not to feature for the club as a civilian.
-I can confirm that Waruru has resigned from the force. So it will be upon him to decide whether he will play for Ulinzi Stars as a civilian or move elsewhere. Should he decide to leave then as the chairman I can only wish with him the very best. He has been a very diligent servant of the club for the last nine years and the least we can offer such a person is our total support. We wish him the very best wherever he will go and in everything that he will partake in future, Oloo said.
Ulinzi will be keen on bolstering its attack that was largely blunt throughout the season.
