Kenya Commercial Bank(KCB) FC might find themselves without their mercurial striker Paul Kiongera.

  The former Gor Mahia and Harambee Stars striker could be leaving the club for unnamed  country in the few coming weeks.

 According to club coach Rishadi Shedu, the player has indicated to  the club management that  he might be leaving the club for unnamed destination after the expiry of his  contract.

   Shedu told  the media after the KCB/AFC Leopards Top Eight semi final match at the Nyayo National Stadium  that if the deal fails to materalise,they will impress on the striker to  renew his contract  with the club.

 ‘We shall dearly miss him. Our striking force  was blunt without him.Kiongera has been a source of inspiration to our team.It;s unfortunate he is leaving us  but we must move  on whether he is there or not” noted shedu.

 He disclosed that he will be shopping for at least  four players to beef up the team ahead of the second leg.He singled out a  striker,midfielder and an offensive supplier.

 The former Bandari  coach said he was happy with the arrival of former AFC Leopards defender and Ugandan Abbas Kiwalabye who has brought stability in defence.
