Having finished the first stanza of the league on top of the goal scorers' charts in the Azam sponsored Tanzania Women Premier League(TWPL), Kigoma Sisters dependable forward Lilly Awuor is likely to miss the better part of the second leg after the Government of Tanzania served clubs with a letter that requires foreigners to have permits to stay in the the country, apart from the work permit. 

The former Spedag FC winger who had returned to Tanzania after the festive season in preparation for the league's resumption, got a rude shock when she was told that lack of a permit will bar her from playing. 

She is thus facing an uncertain future, with the team scheduled to play on Wednesday 4 January, in a match that she will miss. 

Disappointing

"I came back ready for the second leg of the season only to learn that I will not be able to play without a permit. I had a work permit and a licence and I thought it would be enough, it is disappointing but it is not in my hands. All I can do is wait for communication from the club's office. The amount required for the permit is Tshs 4m so all I can do for now is wait," she said 

Lilly who is one of Kigoma Sisters' key players and has 14 goals in her name, will watch from the sidelines as her team takes on Iringa at Tanganyika Grounds.
