Dar es Salaam. The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) has disclosed that they are yet to pay a Sh50 million prize to Mtibwa Sugar for winning the Azam Federation Cup last season.

Apart from Mtibwa Sugar, TFF also said they are yet to pay a Sh50 million prize to Simba for winning the 2016/2017 Azam Federation Cup.

TFF Secretary General Kidao Wilfred clarified that there are contract problems that have caused the body not to pay the winners.

“We are new leaders in the federation; the contract was signed by previous leaders and does not clarify that a Sh50 million prize is for the tournament facilitations.

“We have instructed our lawyers to review it before further decisions,” said Kidao.

Both Mtibwa Sugar and Simba are now struggling to get the money since they won the title in different seasons.
