Once again Gor Mahia faces an uphill task as they try to raise enough funds to travel to Congo for the return leg against AC Leopards.
According to goal.com, The team needs more than Sh5.2million to cover air fare and accommodation costs while in Congo, Brazzaville. A top club official admitted the struggles and said they are working round the clock to ensure they are able to honor the fixture.
“It is a very expensive venture. The air tickets alone will cost us Sh2.6million. We have been given a bill of Sh18, 000 per night each for accommodation. We are working hard to ensure the team travels and performs well,” the official told goal.com
When Gor Mahia needed to travel to Madagascar to play CNaPs, it was former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth who came to their rescue.
Dirkir Glay to soon play for Gor Mahia
Dirkir Glay has been conspicuosly missing from Gor Mahia league matches of late due to the fact that his work permit has not been processed.
According to club official Ronald Ngala, his paperwork has already been submitted and the club is awaiting a response from the ministry of labor.
“We have already received communication from the authorities confirming receipt of our documents and soon we’ll get Glay cleared for domestic competition.” said Ngala to the Standard.
One is left to wonder why the club has not had enough foresight to apply for his work permit ahead of time, given that they signed him two months ago.Glay’s inclusion in the defence will help shore up what has proven to be a less than solid department.
