Gor Mahia will play lower tier side Administration Police in a friendly match. According to goal.com, the friendly will kick off at Camp Toyoyo on Thursday at 2pm.
A friendly against a lower tier team is perhaps what Ze Maria needs to reduce the pressure on his shoulders and boost the team’s confidence. He has been under pressure because Kogalo have lost three friendly matches against Al Hilal, Thika United and Onduparaka.
The last time Kogalo played the APs was in 2015 in a GoTV shield match. Gor Mahia won 3-1 with goals from George Odhiambo “Blackberry” (2) and Meddie Kagere.
According to goal.com, a friendly against Coast-based Mwatate United FC is also planned
Stewards cause mayhem at club meeting
A group of former Gor Mahia stewards stormed a meeting of officials and newly appointed stewards and physically accosted the Gor Mahia officials. According to the report that appeared in the Standard, one official is said to have fired a group of stewards who have been serving the club for the past three seasons, and consequently hired a new group. When the meeting between the new stewards and the select group of officials was taking place, the other group stormed the offices to cause mayhem,” the source said.
“It is about control of the gate collections. Stewards manage the gates and at times control who enters the stadium. Any Gor Mahia game realizes atleast Sh1 million from the game. Do the maths,” the source added.
The stewards numbering about six, stormed the meeting and rained slaps, kicks and blows on officials. But apparently no one was seriously hurt.
Afterwards, Judith Nyangi posted this message in her social media pages:
Stewards fall under my docket and it was disbanded on Saturday during the branch officials meeting.Gor belongs to fans and branches not a group of people. There has been two factions of stewards who have been fighting for power and that’s why I took the action of disbanding. Every branch was to forward two names each to me for new stewards.You cannot stop change and that’s the bitter truth.
