Vihiga Bullets head coach George Owoko has called for financial help from well-wishers ahead of their midweek game against Kariobangi Sharks.

Bullets have so far lost four of the five games they have played so far this season and according to Owoko while acknowledging their potential admitted that he was finding it hard to motivate his young boys ahead of games.

“I have a very young team and you have all seen what they can do on the pitch. Our main undoing has been on the finances. They lack motivation and they are struggling to stay afloat. The County Government promised that they would come on board in November but nothing has been forthcoming since then,” Owoko told Pepeta.

The former Tusker FC assistant coach further stated that they are struggling to raise bus fares to honour their game against Sharks as their current financer former Vihiga County Governor Mr. Moses Akaranga has overused his resources.

“Mr. Akaranga has been helpful thus far and at times it becomes very difficult to ask him for help. On home games, he uses close to Ksh 80k with away games demanding a fee in the region of Ksh 150k on the minimum. It’s taken a toll on him since he isn’t employed too but I want to personally thank him for the far he has brought us. As we speak, we dont know whether we will honour the game against Sharks since we don’t have money for the trip to Nairobi,” Owoko added.

In their plight, the team has managed to get a pay bill number (4060291) that well-wishers can use to channel their contributions.
