Pascal Ochieng

Mainland Tanzania premiership champions Simba have come into agreement with their foreign playing duo of Pascal Ochieng (Kenyan) and Ghanaian Daniel Akuffo after deep pressure exerted by the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF).

 
Simba had signed the playing duo for the Mainland premiership of the ongoing season but later decided to offload them from their fleet of players for undisclosed reasons.
 
The players expressed discontent over the way they have been treated as some fundamental contractual agreements were infringed.
 
The duo had submitted complaints to the football body and the TFF committee worked it out to iron out the dispute.
 
Simba have come into agreement with the players for compensation for breaching the contracts as no details were given by the football body.
 
Troubled Simba that trail six points to archrivals Yanga in the ongoing Premier League, have admitted to indebtness resulting from unpaid arrears of their player Shija Mkina who was transferred on loan to Kagera Sugar.
 
 Besides Mkina, the line-up of Simba players who claim their arrears from the club includes Swalehe Kabali, Victor Costa and Rajab Isiaka. 
 
Simba will have to dig deep into their coffers to make compensation for the six above mentioned players, according to the latest consensus reached between them and the club sanctioned by the TFF.
 
In related development, Coastal Union have also breached a contract with Mohamed Issa and agreed to compensate.
 
Of late it has become a tradition for Mainland premiership clubs to ditch players and dishonour contractual agreements.  
 
Most of the premiership clubs have been recruiting players without consulting their technical sections.
