Sakwa: Nairobi Stima determined to shine despite losing a sponsor

  • Nairobi Stima chairman Johnstone Sakwa is optimistic about a fresh start ahead of the new season amid the crisis of losing their shirt sponsor Kenya Power Company and terminating the contracts of the playing unit.

Coast Stima and Western Stima share in Nairobi Stima’s fate of having a backbreaking assignment managing the players and at the same time being at risk of facing heavy financial turmoil.

“This is to inform you that your contract with Nairobi Stima Welfare Club is terminated from June 30, 2020, as per clause 2.1, which gives the club powers to terminate contract without notice or payment in lieu of notice when the club is dissolved as a result of withdrawal of sponsorship by sponsor,” a letter signed by Sakwa read in part.

Sakwa who also chairs  NSL is optimistic about building a team that will successfully earn promotion to the top flight after coming close in the recent seasons.

“The team was existing even before Kenya Power came on board. I believe we will pull through these murky waters and build a stronger team for the new season. Tough times don’t last but tough people do. I have been with the team for more than a decade and I know we will survive and even make it to the top flight next season. I thank KPLC for their support for all those years,” Sakwa explained.

Sakwa is determined to find a new sponsor for the squad. He revealed that discussions were underway with some corporates in a bid to ensure their immediate former players from finding new homes and cautions other clubs from signing them without following required protocols.

“I have been having discussions with a number of companies and hopefully, we will have another shirt sponsor. Those who want to sign our players must follow the laid down procedures although none has so far told me he wants to leave. Player welfare is an area I have a lot of interest in and I will ensure they are taken care of even with the latest development,” he concluded.
