K’Ogalo chairman Ambrose Rachier reveals to Goal that they did not convene for SGM saying it was done by branches
Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier has distanced himself from Sunday meeting which was reportedly interrupted by ‘goons’.
Branch officials and club’s aspirants in upcoming elections assembled in order to scrutinize the draft constitution but their mission was not accomplished due to unavailability of draft’s copies.
Chairmanship aspirant Dan Oketch categorically told Goal that the incumbent chairman (Ambrose Rachier) deliberately failed to avail the document and instead sent ‘goons’ to interrupt proceedings forcing the meeting to abort.
Chaos as Gor Mahia SGM aborts
However, in his response, Rachier has asserted that the club’s administration did not call for an SGM and that the meeting held on Sunday was purely called by branch officials with the aim of going through the draft constitution. Rachier added that the club is keen on setting up a proper road map towards elections with SGM being the main agenda on the table.
“Sunday meeting that aborted was not an SGM as was widely misunderstood. Branch officials are the ones, who saw it prudent to convene a meeting so as to scrutinize our draft constitution ahead of SGM. We are working round the clock to set a date for the SGM after we postponed it,” he told Goal.
