An audio recording between president Sam Nyamweya and former Gor Mahia winger and now KEFWA Chairman Innocent Mutiso is currently doing rounds on social media.

In his phone conversation with Mutiso, Nyamweya says ” Mutiso, Mutiso, Mutiso hii siasa ya mpira wachana nayo, I will suspend you na utakwisha milele.You are supposed to be neutral , Who are you endorsing na hata hiyo nini yako we don’t recognize it. Tumeandika barua hiyo organization yako ipotee kabisa.”

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

There are 7 players whose contracts have run out and will not be renewed. Club Chief Executive Officer Lordvic Aduda told Supersport.com that the contracts of Patrick Oboya, Innocent Mutiso, Charles Bruno, Kennedy Ayong, Ian Niva, Simon Mburu and Angelo Okumu.

Patrick Oboya joined Gor Mahia in early 2013. He showed flashes of brilliance in 2013 despite injuries. But in 2014, he hardly featured having been plagued by a nagging injury. Innocent Mutiso has also played well when fielded but has also missed large swathes of the season with injuries.

CEO Ludovick Aduda stated that the club is in contact with coach Frank Nuttall. “The coach has told us who to be released, loaned out and who to be retained. He also had areas he wanted beefed up,” said Aduda.

Aduda went on to explain why the players were released. “The players we have released were not adding much value to the team because they were not playing much. Others have shown interest elswhere like Oboya who has been out of the country on trials. Mburu is wanted by Rangers so we have put so many things in consideration before making the decision,” added Aduda.

It is also a fact that Gor Mahia is broke and cannot afford to pay players who miss large swathes of the season with injuries.

Other players who may add value to the team at a later date will be sent on loan. Joel Bataro who joins Shabana, midfielder Daniel Onyango who is headed to Sony Sugar and Joseph kariuki who will be loaned to Kakamega Homeboyz.

Bataro is young and promising. But in 2014 he could not even feature when Jerim Onyango was absent as coach Bobby Williamson preferred David Juma. And with Boniface Oluoch signed, Bataro will be further down in the pecking order. Daniel Onyango and Joseph Kariuki have both shown promise.

Charles Bruno played decent when fielded. But with the team signing Dirkir Glay and already having Israel Emuge and Haron Shakava, Bruno would most likely not see playing time.

Glay who has been playing for Thika United explained why he chose Gor Mahia. “I did not just leave Thika United for Gor Mahia; I came here for a challenge. I knew here I will get a bigger challenge as a player because this is a club preparing for continental duty and I want to be of help to the team in the Champions League. It will be my first taste of continental action and I am happy to be here and ready for the challenge, he said to futaa.com

Gor Mahia secretary general Chris Omondi has indicated that the club has opened contract talks with Ugandan talisman Dan Sserunkuma.

“We are in talks with him and he has shown a willingness to remain with us. He knows what is on the table and we know what he is worth; so that is where we are,” said Omondi to the KPL website.

Sserunkuma has played a pivotal role in the club’s success over the past 3 years and fans will be eager to see him renew at the club after his contract runs out in December.

Omondi also denied rumours that are running rampant that Sserunkuma has already agreed to terms with Simba of Tanzania.

“We have not received any official communication from Simba. These are just things we are reading on social media but nobody from Simba has approached us on the same,” continued Omondi.

Sserunkuma for his part has remained silent on his future.

“At this point, there is bound to be many rumours but I don’t want to get involved with that. I have my agents doing their part, and I will make that decision when the transfer window opens,” he said a fortnight ago before jetting out to Uganda for international duty.

Mutiso to undergo another surgery

Gor Mahia winger Innocent Mutiso who missed most of the 2014 season, is set to miss at least half of the 2015 season because he will undergo surgery before the end of the year. Mutiso’s last injury occurred during the GoTV shield match against GFC 105.

Mutiso praised the club for treating him well during his injury.

“It is been tough to be out for so long but I am confident that I will regain my fitness and fight for my place in the first team,”

“The club has treated me well and I look forward to when I return to also give back through my performance on football pitch, it is the best way I can thank the entire Gor Mahia family for standing with me during my injury.”

Mutiso scored one goal this season and it was a gem, perhaps one of the best goals scored this season in the Kenya Premier League.

Mutiso was elated to see Gor Mahia retain the title they won in 2013

“I am happy that we won, I am happy that my teammates won it for us while I was injured. I look forward to next season and I hope I can contribute to our run when I return.

“My desire is that we can retain the trophy again next season to keep it in our cabinet, I hope that happens because we have quality in our squad and motivation of fans is tremendous.”

Gor Mahia will be without dependable striker Dan Sserunkuma when they play Western Stima this weekend. The Ugandan who has now accomplished legendary status at the club has left for Denmark where he will attend trials for two weeks at HB Koge.

This provides an opportunity for other strikers to step onto the field and prove their worth, including the new signings Semazzi , Timothy Otieno as well as established players like George Odhiambo and Patrick Oboya, both of whom have yet to regain the form that made them national team players 4 years ago.

One player who has not lost his form from 4 years ago is Collins Okoth , based on his performance against Thika United last wekend where he was one of the few bright lights. And Gor Mahia fans will be cheered by that fact.

Other Good news comes in the form of Winger Innocent Mutiso who has returned from his injury according to a story on goal.com. The lively Mutiso will give coach Williamson further options in midfield and attack.

Innocent Mutiso’s goal against KCB is an instant candidate for goal of the year. A superb volley off a header from 20 yards away. It left the KCB goalkeeper stranded not knowing where the ball was until it hit the net. It was Mutiso’s first goal.
