To reaffirm their commitment to the game, the boys gave put all their demands aside on Sunday, went to Kericho and beat Zoo FC 2-3.
Before making the trip, they were promised to be paid on Monday once they return to the city, but Kahawa Tungu sports desk has since established that that was just another empty promise.
