Gor Mahia captain Shakava speaks out on keeping fit after suspension of sports

Gor Mahia captain Harun Shakava says his teammates are trying all they can to do individual workouts in a bid to keep fit. 

Last week, the head of state suspended all sporting activities in the country as a measure aimed at containing coronavirus following the surge in new cases. Before the suspension, KPL had seen 16 matches played, with Tusker currently on top of the table with 36 points.

However, Football Kenya Federation President Nick Mwendwa revealed they are in talks with the Ministry of Sports to have the top-flight league resume. 

The suspension of sporting activities means the training facilities are closed as well and Shakava admits training in groups is better than individuals. However, the K'Ogalo captain says players are having an individual training session in a bid to keep fit before the resumption of the league.

"It is tough," said Shakava as quoted by the club's Twitter account.

"Being together in training is better but now, we have to deal with the situation due to COVID-19 containment measures. As players we just have to try the bit we can and do some individual workout to keep fit as we wait for the green light to resume full training."

This is the second time the league is suspended as the same happened in the 2019/20 campaign. The Green Army was declared the KPL champions by virtue as they were topping the table at the time of suspension.
