Gor Mahia midfielder Jackson Owusu has been detained by a hotel in Nairobi over unpaid dues according to reports.
The midfielder who joined the KPL giants in January has been residing at the Jimlizer Hotel in Buruburu and speaking to Nairobi News, the player admitted that he has been depending on the promises of the club chairman Mr Ambrose Rachier but nothing had been forthcoming.
''The Chairman (Ambrose Rachier) has always been promising to come on a number of occasions to assist me but he has not been here.
''I am not allowed to leave with anything out of the hotel until there is a commitment from the club that the money will be paid. As at now, I don’t know when this will happen,” Owusu said.
The player further stated that he had found it hard in Kenya as he is sometimes forced to take one meal a day with his parents are sometimes forced to send him some money for his use.
''My parents are poor and fully depend on me and they live in Kumasi many kilometres away from Accra. But I have been forced to reach out to them and sometimes they have been forced to travel to town and send me something little.
''I survive many times by only eating one meal in a day and it has to be given out after the attendant has received the go-ahead from the manager. Some fans brought me food on Wednesday and I am really grateful for their kind gesture,'' he added.
Owusu has rarely been used since joining Gor Mahia but seems to have earned the trust of coach Pollack in the last few games before the Coronavirus break.
