Kenyan international winger Cliff Miheso has completed the move to Zambian side Buildcon FC where he has been offered a one year deal in a move reported to be worth Sh3 million.

The midfielder according to media reports was allegedly forced out of South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Golden Arrows FC in January.

Miheso was apparently forced to sign a termination of his contract at gunpoint by his former club Golden Arrows.

The incident created a huge uproar across South Africa with the South African Football Players Union (Safpu) holding protests due to the delay in investigating the incident.

SAPFU protests

SAPFU officials protested at the prestigious Sandton Convention Centre where world governing body FIFA President, Gianni Infantino was leading all 54 African member countries in an executive summit.

“This is after our genuine calls to the authority of football to investigate the incident at Golden Arrows where Clifton Miheso was forced to sign termination of contract at gun point, were never taken serious,” Safpru wrote in a statement.

“Among other things, we shall be demanding, #Justice4Miheso, #Respect4ContractualStability, #FootballersRightToChoose and possible handover of the letter of the demand to the FIFA President,” they added.

“Members of the community can join us as we seek justice and better treatment for our players, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,” the Safpru statement further read.

Latest twist

However in a strange twist both Golden Arrows Football Club and Miheso last month denied the claims he was forced to sign his termination papers at gunpoint.

Miheso, a former Kakamega High School student, rose to the limelight after the 2011 KPL U19 tournament and went on to feature for Thika United in the top flight before joining Sofapaka and later AFC Leopards. He has also had a stint in Finland.

The midfielder joins three other Kenyans in Zambia - Jesse Were, David Owino and Anthony Akumu, all who features for Zesco United.
