“KCB are now a professional club which seek to achieve international status. The best route to take is to ensure players’ welfare is well catered for with good salaries and allowances and that is my vision with the bankers.”” President Uhuru treated the team like the real Queens of Africa on their arrival from the Olympic qualifiers and even directed the Ministry of Sports to pay the players some allowances. This is very motivating and improves the life of the players. We need to follow the standards set in football predictions and other sports, who offer good salary packages to the players,” said Bitok.
