Struggling Harambee Stars Legend Turns to Facebook to Beg for a Job

“Hello today good people…Kindly, asking for a job opportunity for any friend reading this. Been jobless for now 4 years and struggling with bills here and there. If anything positive, kindly contact me on 0745728295. Thanks and stay blessed,” wrote Mr Kisuya on Facebook.

His plea resonates deeply as a stark reminder of the harsh economic realities faced by many local-based players in Kenya.

With salaries spanning from as low as Sh 15,000 to Sh 100,000 per month, numerous players find themselves entrenched in dire financial straits.

The struggle to meet basic needs is exacerbated by insufficient remuneration and erratic payment schedules, plunging these athletes into a cycle of economic uncertainty and instability.

In a past interview, former Harambee Stars star McDonald Mariga shed light on the dire consequences faced by football players in Kenya.

“Our players have been forced to have two jobs because they cannot survive with the salary that comes from playing football. Their concentration is split as a result and they cannot perform for the national team. “The (Harambee Stars) players are paid something below Sh1000 but during our days (under former FKF president Sam Nyamweya) we received Ksh5000, and when we were on away duty, we would be given Ksh10,000,” explained Mariga.
