Ghanaian midfielder Jackson Owusu has been detained in a Nairobi hotel over unpaid bills.
Former Berekum Chelsea and Asante Kotoko midfielder has been staying at Jimlizer Hotel in Buruburu where Gor Mahia Organising Secretary Judith Anyango ‘Nyangi” confirmed that K’Ogalo has accrued over Sh600,000 due to earlier and current pending bills.
Go Mahia’s Owusu narrated his ordeal to Nairobi News how he is broke and how his calls to the club management to pay the pending bills have not headed to.
“The Chairman (Ambrose Rachier) has always been promising to come on a number of occasions to assist me but he has not been here. I am not allowed to leave with anything out of the hotel until there is a commitment from the club that the money will be paid. As at now I don’t know when this will happen,” Owusu said
He added that the issue has really affected his parents here in Ghana over his state in a foreign land
“My parents are poor and fully depend on me and they live in Kumasi many kilometres a way from Accra. But I have been forced to reach out to them and sometimes they have been forced to travel to town and send me something little. You also know that here at the club we have also not been paid and I can’t assist them
“I survive many a times by only eating one meal in a day and it has to be given out after the attendant has received the go a head from the manager. Some fans brought me food on Wednesday and I am really grateful for their kind gesture,” he added.
The Ghanaian midfielder who joined Gor Mahia during the January transfer window has been able to secure a starting position under coach Steven Polack.
The Steven Polack and Jackson Owusu worked together when the former coached Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko way back in 2018 season.
