Shikanda: Watch this space, we will soon end our long wait for the KPL title


AFC Leopards chairman Dan Shikanda has predicted an end of the club’s 22-year title drought in the Kenyan Premier League.

The former Kenyan international has also praised his players for returning good results during a season that the club was bedevilled by crippling financial challenges.


Leopards are sixth on the KPL log with 40 points with the season still indefinitely suspended due to coronavirus pandemic amid a legal tussle between the league running body and Football Kenya Federation (FKF).

Shikanda was speaking on Sunday during the club’s Annual General Meeting held virtually and attended by 1,500 registered fans.

“After a lot of work from a lot of people, things are really set up for football success at the den. Our resolve is to keep Leopards at the pinnacle of the game both at home and a broad,” said Shikanda.

The former Gor Mahia forward was addressing his first AGM as chairman since being elected to the position last year.


Shikanda thanked Ingwe branch leadership and NEC members for offering a helping hand when the going got tough after betting firm SportPesa withdrew its multi-million shillings sponsorship of the club.

Shikanda recently revealed that Leopards have paid its players their full salaries after the club sealed a Sh40 million sponsorship with international betting firm, Betsafe.

The sponsorship has given Ingwe a news lease of life after a very tough season.

“With hugely committed supporters, we are attracting important commercial partners who will help us attain financial stability needed to keep us on top of the game,” Shikanda said regarding the Betsafe sponsorship.

Club treasurer Maurice Chichi also presented the club’s financial report to the members during the AGM.
