By DAVID KWALIMWAMore by this AuthorNot even an impressive set of results at the just concluded Amputee Football World Cup in Mexico seems enough to endear the national amputee team to the powers that be. By 8pm last evening, the team was stranded at the Ministry of Sports headquarters, located on the second floor of Kencom House building at Nairobi’s Central Business District. The squad of 15 players and four officials was awaiting payment of their allowances totalling Sh2 million from the government. When Nation Sport visited the team at the Ministry’s boardroom at about 7:30pm, the players, who are physically challenged were lying on the floor - helpless. “When we were in Mexico we were representing the whole country and singing the national anthem," said a pained team captain Dalmas Otieno.
