Second division coach Kalisa unpaid for six months
Second division club Gasabo United has not paid their coach Jean Paul Kalisa for six months. The coach is now demanding salary arrears worth Rwf. 1.5 millions.
Kalisa who earns Rwf. 250,000 per month has spent the last six months without getting any penny for his services at the second division side.
At the start of this season, the club owned by former Ferwafa vice president Raoul Gisanura Ngezi had promised to take care of tuition for the club’s young players but the assurance was never reached as these school-going young footballers were suddenly chased away from their respective schools.
Kalisa said, “I have been lenient enough and I think it’s high time I quit and look for something productive to do. The club managers have been avoiding us for some time and are nowhere to be reached,”
“We call them but they can’t pick our calls. I am now looking for something else to do and if by July I am not sorted out, I will search for another club to manage and even drag the club to courts of law,” added Kalisa.
One of the footballers Eric Canderra said that ever since last season, they have not earned a single penny, bonuses but due to the player’s team spirit, they managed to help the club reach the semi finals.
This season, Gasabo United ended their campaign for top division flight in ninth position with eight points in a possible 54, winning only one game; drawing five and losing 14 respectively.
Efforts of reaching Gisanura were futile as he refused to pick repeated calls from this paper.
