South Africa based Kenyan international goes AWOL

Matitzburg United Kenyan defender Brian Mandela has reportedly gone missing  from pre-season training to further fuel speculations that he's on his way out of the club

 Mandela is a  target for South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns after exemplary performance with United last season.

 Maritzburg Chairman has now blamed Sundowns for the player's disappearance. The Kenyan international is rumoured to be training with one of top KPL sides. 

-I don't know exactly why Brian is delaying his stay in Kenya, speak to Mamelodi Sundowns – ask them why all the players they have targeted everywhere are not training [with their respective clubs]. It is not only Brian Onyango, but Rivaldo Coetzee at Ajax Cape Town as well as Dumisani Zuma at Celtic, and I don't know who else they are targeting.

Running contract 

- The player [Onyango] still has a contract but I'll deal with that at the right time. But as I'm saying to you now, whatever information you want [about Onyango] is to try and speak to Sundowns and ask what is the process and why all the players they are targeting are not at training with their clubs, the club supremo is quoted by Kick Off. 

Mandela has also featured for Santos FC in South Africa.
