The allegation is arising from accusations towards Kakamega Homeboyz coach, Paul Nkata, that he has been using some of his players to fix matches.
In the last seven games, Kakamega Homeboyz have been winless. This is the trend that triggered eyebrows to be raised and internal investigations within the team began.
It is said that Paul Nkata has fled the country as he is being sought after. At the moment, Allan Wanga has taken over the role in an acting capacity.
