Nairobi - James Situma admits failed communication between AFC Leopards' players
and management had a big impact on his decision to depart the
beleaguered KPL club.

Leopards' non-compliance with tax regulation, which led to their
accounts being frozen by the Kenyan Revenue Authority.
he is saddened to have departed the KPL giants in their time of need,
Situma admits he had little choice but to seek employment elsewhere,
with a six-month deal at Sofapaka believed to have been agreed.
inside, I feel bad leaving AFC Leopards," he said. "I played with all
my heart and soul. My loyalty to the team was unquestionable. I have
never missed a training session. Even when I was injured, I went for
training and sat on the bench to watch my teammates training."
continued: "I feel communication was the major obstacle. The management
was not telling us what was happening. The team manager is supposed to
be the bridge between the playing unit and the management but even he
was in the dark.
"It has been a year of endurance, hard work and
occasional setbacks. A time comes in one's life or career when you must
open a new chapter.
"To my former team-mates I say a big thank
you, for the support. It was at times challenging, but with the
contribution of everyone, we were able to make a great impact."
