Former Thika United striker Moses Arita has urged his former club to say the truth and stop misleading Kenyan’s.
Speaking on phone from his bed at Thika Level Five hospital,the dimunitive striker said the club owes him a public apology for injuring him while he was in the process of demanding his right.
Speaking with a lot of pain,Arita said he was stabbed in his rib by a club official noting that he will pursue the matter to the bitter end.
‘I will not leave the matter to end that way.This is a police case.I need a public apology or else I will pursue the matter to a court of law.In my life, I have never abused anybody or even found myself in my current situation.They know what they have done to me and since I’m in pain and the doctor has advised me to avoid talking or receiving phone, let me leave it at that stage” he said.
Wanajua jamaa aliyenidunga kisu kwa mbavu.Waseme ukweli na waache kupotosha watu(They know the person who stabbed me in my ribs,they should say the truth and stop misleading Kenyans”Observed Arita on phone.
Club sources indicate the player walked into the Thika United offices on Tuesday evening after being summoned to collect his dismissal letter. After deliberations with the team manager George Maina, the player demanded a copy of his contract after claiming to have lost his.
Arita was handed the contract to make a copy and according to the owner of the shop a scuffle ensued after Arita allegedly abused the shop attendants and the team manager rushed to the shop to separate the two.
Almost one and half hours later the two stormed the Thika United offices with another brawl this time more intense and ugly whereby police had to be called in to settle the matter.
Arita is among four players who have been shown the door.Others are former Gor Mahia midfielder Anthony Gathu, youngster Charles Bruno and Anthony Kimani.
