Paperwork stalls Omondi, Were SA dreams

11 August 2014, 10:34

Johannesburg - The contentious issue of work permits appears to have deferred two South African-based Kenyans' dreams of resuming their careers in the Absa Premiership.

Paul Were and Kevin Omondi did not feature for Amazulu and Moroka Swallows respectively.

This publication was informed the duo was yet to secure its work permits from the Department of Home Affairs, ruling them out of the matches against Ajax Cape Town and Orlando Pirates respectively.

Amazulu drew 1-1 with Ajax while Swallows won 2-1 in the absence of the pair.

Despite the win, Swallows Chief Executive Officer, Leon Prins, is eager to see Omondi in action.

"He is an exciting attacking player who can play as a winger and as a midfielder," he said.

Amazulu likewise sung praises of the Kenyan signing.

"Were, who signed for AmaZulu has both speed and scoring prowess, a development that will see the Usuthu coaching department headed by Craig Rosslee use him in the next assignment," the club stated.

Were signed from AFC Leopards while his countryman joined Swallows from defending champions Gor Mahia.
