AFC Leopards chairman Dan Mule has pledged to work with the recently constituted Rescue Committee in order to help improve the club’s performance.

Leopards’ performance has nosedived to alarming levels sliding to the relegation zone, sitting at position 17 with 10 points in the 18-team league and Mule says he is ready to work with the Rescue Committee.

A week ago a select club officials teamed up with stakeholders to form a separate management team, which was unveiled by club patron and Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja, in the absence of the club chairman who is on a business trip out abroad.

At the same time, Mule who is yet to return to the country, said he was not privy to the formation of the committee chaired by the Kakamega business man Maurice Amahwa whom he defeated during the club’s elections held three years ago, but has pledged his commitment to ensure the club find its footing.

“I only learnt about the formation of the committee on social media, if its mandate is to improve the performance of the team, then we are together,” Mule told Citizen Digital on a phone interview.

The group whose vice chairman is a former Ingwe striker Dan Shikanda claims its main ambition is to rescue the team following its spate of poor results.

However this being an election year for the National Executive Committee members, eye brows have been raised that its formation could have political undertones.

Mule is yet to announce whether he will be defending his seat.

“I also want to see the team improve; I know we have gone through thick and thin,” he added.

Two weeks ago, the club appointed Rwandese Andre Casa Mbungo as the new head coach taking over from Serbian Marco Vasiljevic who had been in charge for barely two months.

Ingwe lost to Gor Mahia in last weekend’s Mashemeji derby falling 2-0 and are set to play Ulinzi Stars in this weekend’s fixture.
