To commit an offence is one thing but to be on the run for the offence is another thing all together, such is the situation former S.C Villa, URA and Tusker coach Paul Nkata finds himself in.
The former Cranes midfielder has been accused of engaging in match fixing along with a section of his players at Kenya Premier League outfit Kakamega HomeBoys and his whereabouts are not known.
Kakamega have since released a statement stating Nkata has with immediate effect been replaced with veteran striker Allan Wanga.
“Yes it’s true Allan Wanga is our manager, he takes over effective immediately, he takes charge on interim basis until we get another coach,” The club founder and owner Cleophas Shimanyula said in a statement.
“Paul Nkata is nolonger with us, there reasons behind it and we shall communicate in due course,” Shimanyula added.
A source told www football-256.com that Shimanyula got worried about the team’s poor run and decided to investigate the players.
“It was always going to be revealed once eight players were involved in fixing games, the club chairman just pinned two of them and they had to give all the details,” a source said.
“Because to be honest, when you look at the kind of team Kakamega has they shouldn’t be losing matches in the manner they lose them.
Nkata joined Kakamega Homeboys on a one year deal 8 months ago. He leaves the team 13th on the log with a dismal 2 wins, 4 losses and 3 draws from 9 games played.
Nkata’s last coaching job in Uganda was in the 2017/2018 season with URA, he lost 7-2 to KCCS FC before stepping down immediately after the game.
