Nairobi - AFC Leopards CEO Richard Ekhalie has resigned from the club to concentrate on 'private businesses'.
Ekhalie, the only non-elected official in the Leopards executive committee has resigned in the wake of boardroom disagreements over the state of the club.
" I can now confirm that I will be leaving the position of Ag. CEO of this great club at the expiry of one month notice, to concentrate on private business. I thank the chairman on behalf of the National Executive Committee for according me the opportunity to serve the club I love. I also appreciate the entire Ingwe family for the cooperation they gave me that made my stay worthwhile. But I will not forget to remind the Ingwe stakeholders to continue building on the gains we have made to transform this club into a financially independent and respected football powerhouse in Africa. This will include, but not limited to fully impressing and equipping the recently established club secretariat to run the day to day affairs of the club as the elected NEC play an important oversight role. Together, I believe we have put in place a solid foundation capable of propelling Ingwe into greatness. I sign off by wishing AFC Leopards success in all competitions this season and beyond, he said in a press statement.
Leopards have recently sacked their technical bench and are yet to appoint a new coach, following a poor start to the season.
