Better late than never. The remaining three Kenyan boxers who won medals in the Africa Championships last year in Maputo have been paid their dues.
Featherweight Sam Njau and heavyweight Liz Andiego, both silver medallists and light-middleweight bronze medallist, Boniface Mogunde were reportedly paid last week, according to authoritative sources.
Boxing Federation of Kenya (BFK) have now fulfilled their promise of paying all the four boxers their prize money.
While the payment of Nick Okoth’s Ksh600,000 was done publicly with photos shared on social media, this time around, BFK decided to pay Maputo 3 quietly away from public glare.
Now that BFK have paid the remaining three boxers, though belatedly, focus now turns to former Africa Boxing Confederation (AFBC) President, Bertrand Mendouga who owes 29 boxers a total of $162,500 being their prize money in Maputo which the former AFBC President admitted he used to launch their headquarters in Yaounde early this year.
