Kenyan Premier League (KPL) side Gor Mahia is still awaiting the World Football governing body FIFA to response regarding the Patrick Oboya transfer issue.

FIFA had written to the club requesting to be furnished with details of his transfer and according to Assistant Secretary General Ronald Ngala, they did so but are yet to get feedback.

-We did all that was requested but are yet to get any feedback from FIFA. They have up to 60 days to respond so it’s still within the time frame, Ngala confirmed to,


Oboya hasn’t featured for Gor Mahia since the issue arose but has still been training with the team consistently.

-It’s the prerogative of the Head Coach to choose whoever plays but I can’t also deny that we had to pull him (Oboya) off and wait until this issue is done away with, Ngala said,

-This however does not mean that we are guilty as a club. We just want to be careful, he added.

Oboya previously played for Tusker FC and AFC Leopards locally before joining FK Banik Most in 2007 (then known as Siad Most).

He was loaned out to FK Fotbal Trinec in 2011 and later joined MFK Ruzomberok.
