Against the backdrop of sensational form that has seen Kogalo dismiss Ulinzi and Posta Rangers by scores of 2-0 and 5-0 respectively, Gor Mahia are due to play SoNy Sugar on Friday.
But their 12 point lead atop the standings could be in jeopardy.
Yesterday, Kogalo players went on strike in Kisumu threatening snub tomorrow’s league match against Sony Sugar at Moi Stadium. The players are demanding all the outstanding allowances.
Gor Mahia Organising Secretary Judith Nyangi said the players have informed her they were checking out of the hotel in protest to owed allowances.
“They got in touch with me from Kisumu and have told me categorically that they will not stay in the hotel or honour Friday’s match against Sony Sugar. We have tried to convince them but in vain,” she said.
Club chairman Ambrose Rachier, who is in Russia, tried convince the players to return to camp and honour Friday’s fixture.
Gor Mahia’s pursuit of Ugandan player Erisa Ssekisambu has ended.
“The deal is off. We have been in talks for the past couple of days but failed to agree over a number of issues,” Ssekisambu’s agent Ronnie Santos told Kawowo Sports.
Ssekisambu has won the Uganda Cup’s MVP twice and was also in the run for the UPL Best Player in the 2014/15 campaign. He has also been a regular for the Uganda Cranes.
