National team players led by their captain, Sundowns FC player Masinde Denis Onyango have informed the president that they need this money so much especially during this Covid 19 period that has left many of them with empty pockets.

Some of these players have retired from the National team football which has worried them whether they receive their cash Bonanza.

Well talented left back Godfrey Walusimbi is among the retired players.
