The national amputee football team has ended a day-long strike after agreeing a deal with government to have their allowances paid by next week.

According to the Kenya Amputee Federation treasurer Polycap Otieno, and team captain Dalmas Otieno, this was reached after the team held talks with Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa on Friday morning.

"We have been given Sh200,000 and promised the remaining Sh2.2 million by Wednesday next week. The Minister was also unhappy that we used Sonko branded T-shirts at the tournament but we have also resolved that," said Polycap Otieno.

The team spent Thursday night at the Ministry of Sports headquarters' boardroom after failing to get audience with the minister.
