Ahead of the crucial Tusker Premier League (TPL) assignment with Tusker on Sunday 27 October at the Nairobi City Stadium, there has been talk in the local football scene that Gor Mahia players’ salaries have not been paid for two months.
The reason for the lack of pay has been reported as a standoff between the club and sponsors Tuzo, emanating from the association with the Tokelezea na Jalee promotion and the club’s vice chair Faiz Ochieng acknowledges the dairy firm has not remitted the salaries.
He, however, added that the players have been paid in full with finances acquired from other means and told futaa.com that all the allegations of non payment are ploys by detractors to see the team destabilised ahead of the crucial game.
-I have to acknowledge that it is true Tuzo have not paid our players salaries for two months but that doesn’t mean the players have not been paid – our players are fully paid up by money got from other sources.
-When this Tokelezea na Jalee issue is over, Tuzo will remit the payments so I am calling on the detractors to keep off Gor Mahia affairs; this is a scheme to see us destabilised at this crucial stage, he said.
