Skipper Kenneth Muguna and Vice Skipper Joash Onyango are said to have absconded duty due to unpaid salaries and unmet promises.

Additional reporting from the Nation

Gor Mahia captain Kenneth Muguna and his assistant Joash Onyango will not be part of the team that will take on Kariobangi Sharks on Sunday at Afraha Stadium.

The pair has not returned to the club after the international break and are reported to have walked out amid unfulfilled promises from the management over unpaid salaries. Both players were part of the Harambee Stars team that lost 0-1 to Mozambique at Kasarani last Sunday.

“It’s not my job to know whereabouts of players but the team manager (Jolawi Abondo) has briefed me that Onyango and Muguna are no longer picking his calls and communicating with him. I don’t know if they have valid reasons for that but I take it as an act of indiscipline,” Gor coach Steven Polack told Nation Sport on Saturday.

Polack has moved with speed to appoint Joachim Oluoch and Charles Momanyi as captain and assistant respectively ahead of Sunday’s Kenyan Premier League match against Sharks.

“As at now they are suspended until after meeting with the club management on the way forward. I have therefore handed the armband to Joachim Oluoch and he will be deputized by Charles Momanyi. We are good as a team and well prepared for the match against Kariobangi Sharks,” assured Polack.

A source close to the club told Nation Sport that there has been unrest among the playing unit due to empty promises from the management over the two-months salaries owed.

  1. Fake Gor player… Show up where? In your tin house ama? We all know you are not a Gor player. You have never been and you will never be. Cut out your stupid nonsense and stop inciting people you idle good for nothing oaf(ask someone who has a better brain than yours to tell you what oaf means)

  2. please I need signatures to pass my sport bill.my sport bill has a lot for non performing ligs basket ball,rugby,football,handball,hockey,volleyball and cricket.all we need to have our counties having clubs that identified with its residents,and counties will have at their budget contributing 600m towards rewards of clubs at their respective sports.e.g. number1 in football Kpl should be getting 120m and last on the table should be getting 40m.minimum salary for top tier sports ligs should be 150k plus house allowance and medical insurance.no companies clubs to play our ligs they should be spornsering us.

  3. Any person playing for Gor Mahia should know this is like a village team that occasionally flies out of the country.So play and have side hustle as you await a better club abroad.

  4. Congratulations team in spite af all the difficulties. We had a chance to see the Westies and I think in full fitness, these are the pillars of team going forward.

    Jasego, you promised us sponsorship, where are we?

  5. THEY MUST BE DEMOTED PERMANENTLY. If a captain goes AWOL, who links the players and the management.Poor leadership. We never saw Julius Owino, Jerim Onyango, Musa Mohammed or even Shakava do that. In fact, Shakava played a CAFCC match against Berkane with an empty stomach, wallet and carrying an injury but still fought gallantly for the badge after others had staged a mutiny. Thats the leadership we deserve. Miss him already
