Paperwork stalls Omondi, Were SA dreams
by TINSWALO BALOYI
JOHANNESBURG – THE contentious issue of work permits appears to have deferred two South African-based Kenyans’ dreams of resuming their careers in the Absa Premiership.
Paul Were and Kevin Omondi did not feature for Amazulu and Moroka Swallows respectively.
CAJ News was informed the duo was yet to secure its work permits from the
Department of Home Affairs, ruling them out of the matches against Ajax
Cape Town and Orlando Pirates respectively.
Amazulu drew 1-1 with Ajax while Swallows won 2-1 in the absence of the pair.
Despite the win, Swallows Chief Executive Officer, Leon Prins, is eager to see Omondi in action.
“He is an exciting attacking player who can play as a winger and as a
midfielder,” he said.
Amazulu likewise sung praises of the Kenyan signing.
“Were, who signed for AmaZulu has both speed and scoring prowess, a
development that will see the Usuthu coaching department headed by Craig
Rosslee use him in the next assignment,” the club stated.
Were signed from Democratic Republic of Congo’s AFC Leopards while his
countryman joined Swallows from local defending champions Gor Mahia.
