AFC Leopards head coach Andre Casa Mbungo will be paid by his former employees SC Kiyovu for unfair dismissal.
The Rwanda Premier League side has been ordered to pay Rwf 6.5million (Approx Ksh 727k) following Mbungo’s unlawful dismissal last October by the Rwandese Football Federation (FERWAFA).
According to The Times of Rwanda, FERWAFA will write a letter to Kiyovu informing them about the same decision with Mbungo stating that he had tried to solve his issue amicably with the club before taking the matter to the country’s federation.
“I tried to sort things out with the club amicably but they did not cooperate,” Mbungo told the Times.
Cant sign a player
The time further states that FERWAFA won’t allow the club to sign any player until the Leopards coach is sorted.
This is not the first time that SC Kiyovu is being accused of failing to pay their coaches with the latest coming after cases involving former coaches in Ally Bizimungu, Jean Baptiste Kayiranga, and Innocent Seninga.
Mbungo joined Leopards last year and has started this season in a brilliant fashion with the club sitting at position two of the Kenyan Premier League log; just two points below arch-rivals Gor Mahia who have played a game less.
