And official also confirmed the situation.

“It is true that we have been denied access to Camp Toyoyo because of unpaid arrears. The amount we are talking about here is standing at millions but I hope the situation will be solved. It is unfortunate that this has happened and we have now booked Parklands Sports Club as a temporary training ground as we solve the matter.” said an official to goal.com
Chairman Ambrose Rachier confirmed that after being removed from Nyayo stadium, the club will be looking for a smaller space to rent.

I am sure you also owe someone money,” said Rachier, adding “We have debts and are trying to clear them. Our offices have been shut down and we are talking to the people concerned while trying to reach a settlement, which may involve leasing a smaller affordable space.” he said to the Nation.

And with Gor Mahia chairman being at loggerheads with FKF, the club could be found in default of the new licensing rules which requires every premier league club to have a secretariat and lease agreement for a training ground and stadium for the whole season.
