Kenyan Football Premier league Shabana FC fans have accused a group of ladies dubbed ‘Warembo na Shabana’ for interfering with their players a day before matches.
In a statement released by a concerned supporter of the Kenya Premier League club, the fans alleged that the presence of these ladies was affecting the players’ focus before matches.
“Shabana FC updates 2023-2024- Despite the managerial misunderstandings, our team Shabana FC has several issues that are undermining their performance in the field for the last few games. There is a group of ladies who call themselves ‘Warembo Na Shabana’. They are the major threat, I can confidently say, dragging our team behind,” read the statement.
The statement further revealed that the team’s management, including the Governor of Kisii County and the Ministry of Sports, has been working diligently to support Shabana FC.
However, the alleged interference from ‘Warembo Na Shabana’ has become a significant concern.
, “It’s quite unfortunate that the Governor of Kisii County and the Ministry of Sports are working hard to ensure our team is thriving well only to find that those being aided are not seeing. It came out clearly that the players always travel a day after their away matches in case it is far away, they get accommodation in inns for the night. Here is where now the players notify the Warembo na Shabana of their residence.”
To address the issue, the statement urged both the female fans and the players to refrain from disclosing their whereabouts to each other, especially on the eve of matches.
“The players focus more on bedwork knowing very well they will have a match the following day. They wake up in the morning very tired and that’s how they have been losing matches. Warembo na Shabana should, with immediate effect, avoid following our players where they go. The players should also avoid informing the women where they are spending their nights. This should stop immediately.” concluded the statement.
Shabana FC is currently placed second from the bottom in the 18-team league.
