Youthful striker Edwin Lavatsa has mysteriously disspeared from the Gor Mahia camp. His whereabouts are unknown by the technical bench. The Speedy Lavatsa who recently finished school at Upper Hill has not been training with the team for the past 2 weeks according to assistant coach Zablon ‘Pro’ Otieno and has not communicated to the technical bench.
“It is good for the public to know about what is going on in the team so that some fans don’t get agitated when they see some players not being fielded in some of our matches, in fact I would prefer that the club be holding a press conference before each of our matches,” said Otieno.
He added: “Lavatsa has not been coming to training and we don’t know what is happening with him because he has also switched off his phone or may be changed his lines. He will certainly not be featuring against Bandari, Collins Okoth only trained once with us and will not be travelling to Mombasa and so is striker Wycliffe Ochomo who is suspended.”
In the absence of Lavatsa, coach Awono Anaba who will be on the bench in the absence of head coach Zedekiah ‘Zico’ Otieno, would be forced to start with Ezekiel Odera and Dimonde Selenga upfront.

Unconfirmed rumours abound that he has been poached by AFC Leopards in a manner similar to the way AFC poached Musa Otieno from Kogalo circa 1993
