Troubles seems to have knocked at the door of Wazito FC as the club faces imminent auction. This is after High Court froze several assets at the Kenya Premier League Club.
The club’s former Sporting Director and Treasurer Solomon Alubala sued after his dismissal from the club.
In 2019, Alubala was fired by the clubs owner Ricardo Badoer, through a tweet, shocking many.
“As of today, Solomon Alubala will step down as Sporting Director and Treasurer for Wazito FC,” tweeted Badoer.
But Solomon Alubala was reportedly not compensated as per the Kenyan Employment Act 2017 leading to the suit.

For now, several assets of Wazito FC are on the line including their Mercedes Benz, Bus Registration No. KCR 158Q, Toyota Land Cruiser Registration No. KCU 031F, and Volkwagen Touring No KCT 909Q.
Wazito FC owner Ricardo Badoer has also been barred from selling, transferring, or in any manner dealing with any shares, equity and property.
On the line also are bank accounts Badoer holds at Badoer Investments, Sumac Microfinance Limited and Nextgen Mall Commercial Unit No. 14.
