Breaking news: Shock as Former AFC leopards Forward retires from active football

Bandari FC midfielder Whyvone Isuza has announced his retirement from competitive football.

The attacking midfielder featured for Thika United, Nairobi Stima, Mathare United, AFC Leopards and Wazito FC before moving to Bandari.

He was also part of the Harambee Stars team that won the 2017 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.

This comes months after Isuza and his Tusker counterpart Teddy Osok were sanctioned by ADAK over violation rules.

According to a report by ADAK following their investigation, Osok was found to have abused a banned substance, Boldenone.

Boldenone is an anabolic androgenic steroid and synthetic derivative of testosterone that was originally developed for veterinary use but has since become one of the more common performance-enhancing drugs that athletes test positive for in sports.

Sample collection

He was provisionally suspended from March this year until a decision is delivered in his case. However, no decision about his case has been delivered and a sanction is yet to be imposed.

On the other hand, Isuza was not tested and thus charged with refusing to submit to sample collection without a compelling justification after notification by a duly authorized person as per Article 2.3 of the World Anti-Doping Code 2021.

For this offence, he was slapped with a penalty of four years of ineligibility from September last year to September 2025.

Speaking exclusively to People Sport, ADAK Head of Corporation and Legal Services, Bildad Rogoncho stated that because of the severity of the cases, the two players had to be represented by lawyers after being informed of their misgivings.

“The two football players, their clubs and their federation were notified of their Anti-Doping Rule Violations, legal representation was accorded to them, and their legal counsels filed their respective defences in their cases. Article eight of the Anti-Doping Act provides for a right to a fair hearing and the Sports Disputes Tribunal has jurisdiction in the case of National and County level athletes to hear both the first instance and their appeal.”

Sports Lawyer Sarah Ochwada, has warned that the accused duo must have proper grounds for appeal mechanisms since the threshold of defence is high.
