AFC Leopards chairman Dan Shikanda has castigated Football Kenya Federation for blocking all the clubs monthly grants.

According to the former Leopards and Gor Mahia player, they have not received a coin from the Federation since April which has dealt a huge blow to their finances.

“We have played in the FKF Premier League which has been under a sponsorship last season. Despite that, since April we have not received any money and we are hearing that they have deducted the money and channeled it to clear the fine that FKF imposed on us in August,” Shikanda said.

In August, Leopards were fined Sh6 million by the federation for failing to honour the Mashemeji derby clash against Gor Mahia.

Meanwhile, Shikanda has announced that the club will be making a number of changes, aimed at improving the commercial value of the the 12-time champions.

Ingwe have struggled to attract corporate sponsorship and are surviving on a shoestring budget.

“We want to make a number of changes at AFC Leopards so that people can start looking at football with  commercial lenses.

People are currently looking at football with failure lenses lens yet it is the biggest industry in the world,” Shikanda submitted.

Leopards squeezed a shocking 1-0 win against champions Tusker in their opening match of the FKF-PL 2021-2022 season before the international break and will be facing KCB in their next match on October 16.
