  1. Mapinduzi cup fixtures have been released to start on 31st of this month. Azam, Simba and Yanga are among the teams that will participate. Gor Mahia declined the invitation yet KPL is currently on holiday. What excuses do we have? Stop diverting our attention using this U-20 tournament.
    If you sincerely long to gauge your ability and preparations for next season, be brave enough and attend the tournament in Zanzibar.

    1. Where are players, they are on holiday and I think the deserve it. You do not participate in a tournament just for the sake of it.

    1. Relax Jambita Tiny and JGT.
      Let’s give the office time. They were elected just the other day, 8 years not withstanding, Mapinduzi is not important we have the sofaloaf, butterflies and savanah cement for friendlies.

  2. The other very important event the new office should implement is Gor Mahia Awards-for players, officials and members. This is more important than the fan days and should include member award e.g best/biggest branch, though i don’t see the future of branches given e-registration and possible voting, longest serving member(s), best idea from member, best EC member nominated by members etc. Tusker, Zesco even Mathare have awards for their clubs GMFC should follow suit.
