Caught up in the chop is former Gor Mahia midfielder Collins ‘Gatusso’ Okoth who was released by ‘K’Ogalo’ early this season due to disciplinary issues.
Others who have been dropped are Hashim Mukhwana, Kanamuli Kapilima, and Hakim Ssekumba.
“We had a meeting with the coach on Tuesday and he said the four are not needed because they do not fit in his vision for the future,” he said.
Kalekwa said the new coach has also indicated that he wants to maintain a lean squad of 24 players next season to ensure every player is used.
“He has made it clear that we do not need to keep a large squad yet we are not using everyone and so we will trim the team to a manageable number of just 24 ahead of the new season.
“This means that more players will be allowed to leave at the end of the season,” Kalekwa added.
Elsewhere, Tusker coach Robert Matano says he is happy with the team’s form after being in charge for four matches.
Matano said the players have grown in confidence and their status as champions will be enough motivation to retain the KPL title at the end of the season.
“When I took over, morale was low and there were also disciplinary issues, but I am glad that these have been dealt with positively and the team is now on track to retain the title.
