Ambrose Rachier was quoted lamenting that the unveiling of both Muguna and Batambuze were ‘done hurriedly against my will’. Gor Mahia Secretary General Ben Omondi has raised an alarm over the manner in which the club is conducting its business in the ongoing transfer window.

Gor Maha have so far signed midfielder Kenneth Muguna and Ugandan Shafik Batambuze on a three and two year deals respectively. But Omondi is now questioning the new transfer policy being carried out by the club CEO Lordvic Aduda.

Omondi says that the rest of the club’s exo-embers are on the dark in the new transfer deals. “I don’t know under whose authority the CEO is working because most of the executive committee members are unaware of the details of these transfers. We just read about them on the media.

“The said transfer deals have been done without due procedure because according to the constitution of the club, any deal is supposed to be signed in the presence of the Chairman, Secretary General, and the treasurer, not the CEO,” Omondi told Goal.

Gor Mahia are also reportedly interested in the signature of Sofapaka midfielder Dennis Odhiambo but according to Omondi, the transfer business is being conducted with the utmost secrecy, not even head coach Dylan Kerr has an idea on who is being brought in.

“The coach made it very clear that he is satisfied with the number of foreign players and the truth is we (Gor Mahia) don’t have the money to sign more players.

“The EC is supposed to meet to chat the away forward because we are in the dark. We don’t even know anything about the signing fee.” Omondi added.

Club chairman Ambrose Rachier was also quoted by a section of the media lamenting that the unveiling of both Muguna and Batambuze were ‘done hurriedly against my will’.
