Both Innocent Mutiso and Patrick Oboya have played pivotal roles in enabling Gor Mahia to secure two consecutive league titles. Both have had some memorable moments at Gor Mahia.

One of the most memorable moments Mutiso had was his wonder goal against KCB that enabled Gor Mahia to secure a 3-2 win. Mutiso when healthy was a live-wire on the right flank and gave defenders nighmares. Against US Bitam earlier this year, he scored one of the penalties during the shootout that saw Gor Mahia through to the next round.

Mutiso has also been excellent for public relations, appearing in club functions as well as initiatives driven by the Gor Mahia fans foundation such as the Mater heart run.

Oboya also had some memorable moments at Gor Mahia. Against Esperance in Tunis, Oboya gave Gor Mahia fans perhaps the only moment they could cheer when his mazy dribbling made that Esperance defender dance “Kanungo” in a manner reminiscent of Ben Oloo “breakdance”. Oboya’s clever flick to Sserunkuma created the crucial goal Kogalo needed to secure their first title in 18 years.

Indeed Gor Mahia has been patient while helping this talented duo recuperate from their nagging injuries. However the financial imperative has forced Gor Mahia’s hand into dropping them.

Mutiso posted a thank you note on his social media page and promised to be back stronger.

“I know I will be back 2015 all guns blazing bigger and better once I get fit again and I believe any team which will land my signature will be lucky to have me! Thank you Gor Mahia fraternity for giving me the opportunity to serve you, the post read.”

Victor Ali Abondo is back

Gor Mahia and Tusker appear to have agreed on terms for the return of Victor Ali Abondo. “We have given Gor Mahia the go ahead to sign him since they want to submit the name of the player for continentals in time. We shall finalize on the deal later on but they can have the player, Obiny revealed to futaa.com

Abondo was a regular first team player in 2012 and 2013 and a favourite of former coach Zdravko Logarusic because of his solid tactical acumen. Abondo is also known for his robust tackles, an issue that almost saw him come to fisticuffs with his fellow kisumu lad George Odhiambo earlier this year.

He fell out of favour when Logarusic departed with some of the coaching staff accusing him of lack of effort. One hopes that he has improved in that regard.

Spectacular goal by Innocent Mutiso

    so all the talks of signing quality players was just talks or the likes of abondo r the players we were waiting 4. Or if Abondo is a top player then y was he released at the end of 2013 season. Will the players who were linked to gor join gor.y not sign Olnga instead of Abondo.what about Umony, Ssentongo & the Rwandan fullback. Tho! Awuoro?

    How about getting us Messi and Ronaldo? Ever heard the phrase cutting your cloth according to your means? Do we want the EC to copy paste the contracts on this blog for us to believe what they are saying?

  • Jatingare says:

    Abondo has been relegated to the Tusker bench. Plus he is a defensive midfielder which GM does not need. If they were going to bring players back, they should have brough back Ade and Lavatsa. GM needs attacking flair. They dont need defensive players. Tusker are eager to drop him for the same reason GM dropped him in 2012.

  • Then can u guys tell us the players u want to be bought then u also tell us where we are going to get that kind of money the same players u are making alot of noise about is going to come from,if i may ask how many of u contributed on the okao GOR MAHIA brand that was initiated by one of us here? how many of u contributed on the other one by Tonny Anelka? so how and i repeat how do u guys want good players n u cant even contribute even 100 for the club,u force ur way into the stadium 4 free or u pay 50 to bribe ur way into the stadium VIP then u start complaining about EC eating your money mara oooh the stadium was full and the EC are saying there is no money and yet u know u always get into the stadium free,please lets keep all this sideshows away from the club,the same noise we had last year and it did not make us not to defend the title so please tuwache the relevant people do there job tuwache panganga mingi na makulutu mingi.

    I guess we are going for average players because of financial constraints.

    That means in 2015 we are just trying our luck but not ready to make any meaningful impact in the continental scene.

    All the best. GM now needs to have a very small squad of about 23 players and EC should also be very small. No need to have so many officials who don’t add any value especially in terms of financial gains

  • Caleb Mango says:

    Gor need to sign two strikers to replace Sserenkuma and Rama Salim. Gor is yet to replace the two. The players Gor has signed don’t measure up to the two.
