    Gor Juniors, there is still hope to proceed to the knockouts

    Romours that we might rope in Atudo, Muguna, Kimura and Johanna are ripe n the air. All we can do is to wait and see. At least something is being done. The drawback is in housekeeping , especially documentation and compliance. CAF licensing should never have been a problem to Gor. When Ulinzi and Tusker were doing so what was GM waiting for?. Or were we not expecting to go continental from the word go?

      In compliance to CAF requirements, we would like to know what has the executive committee has been waiting for in this critical matter. This is why we need a structured secretariat office headed by CEO with clear mandate. Any further delay can cause the club to be deregistered from participating in any football tournament.
