Mishap sees Burundi detained in hotel

04 December 2013, 10:10

Nairobi - The Burundi National team was detained at a Nairobi hotel Tuesday in a misunderstanding over unpaid bills.

The incident took place when the 'Swallows' were readying themselves to leave for Nakuru to prepare for their Wednesday clash in the CECAFA Championships when management of the Milele Hotel refused to let them leave demanding payment.

According to the Hotel Manager, payment was to be made before departure.

The puzzled Burundians were left in shock and after intervention from the Football Kenya Federation chair Sam Nyamweya, the team was allowed to leave.

" They were only checking out to go to Nakuru and not leaving completely. That was the mishap and I apologise on behalf of the local committee to the Burundi team, he said.

The Burundians take on Tanzania this afternoon in their final group match, hoping to seek progression to the quarterfinal stages.
