Gor Mahia players on go slow

Gor Mahia players have apparently not been paid their October salaries. They are therefore going on a go slow to demand action on the same

The Kenyan champions will take part in the Caf competition for the second season in a row after winning the league title
Gor Mahia are in a huge crisis less than two weeks before they launch their campaign in the Caf Champion League.

The Kenyan champions will take part in the Caf competition for the second season in a row after winning the league title but all is not well as the team is yet to hit camp in readiness for the preliminary fixture against Malawi giants Nyasa Big Bullets.

K’Ogalo CEO Omondi Aduda had revealed to Goal on Monday that the team will resume training on Tuesday ahead of the tie. However, Goal can now reveal that Gor Mahia players and some officials are on a go slow and have demanded that their grievances are met before they resume training.

A source within the club has confirmed that the players are demanding for their October salary that was promised to be paid before they left for England to face Everton and the club is yet to pay for the training venue.

“It is a crisis of sought because things are not moving at the moment. The players want their October salary paid before they hit camp and as a matter of fact, the club management is yet to pay for the training venue.

“They (players) don’t have a venue where they can train and it is very unlucky that, we are heading into a new season, with the same problems that almost spoiled the 2018 season. We only have less than two weeks before we face Bullets and I will not be surprised if they kick us out.

“Furthermore, the players in the team have persevered for a long time and they want the office to clear the arrears because they have families to take care of. Others are struggling to pay rent and only received some token from SportPesa CEO during their tour of Everton. That is the only money they have received so far and is not enough to keep them going.”

Gor Mahia will host the Malawian league leaders on 27/28 November before the return leg a week later at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

    Yes…Hence my urgent appeal for quickfire AGM to address even more burning issues bigger than finances.

    Tomorrow I will meet his majesty, right Reverend chairman to advocate and lobby hard for the eagerly awaited AGM or else I see the month of December as a disaster in waiting ….

      @JTGJ…Messr Jakoyo is not calling any meeting to solve anything of benefit to the larger K’Ogalo fraternity. Read in between his line of “discussing biggers things than club finances”. What are this things if not insurbodination of Judith Nyangi and Ben Omondi? They intend to use it to cause more crises and disharmony from which we will come out worse than we went in my brother. Don’t trust Pseudo Failed Politicians Masquerading as Trade Unionists while Having No Fixed Abodes to call an organized AGM in Gor Mahia…

    Hahaha… Jasego, so you know this man Jakoyo in person? But what is the solution my brother? It’s really worrying. If we continue this way, soon we may, just may NOT have a team called Gor Mahia. Apparently we are not prepared, are not preparing for the assignment ahead.nkt

    Hi Guys,
    Looks like we urgently need an AGM to sort out these issues.
    Our EC is fond of taking credit when we perform well only to disappear when things are thick.
    As it is we will not even be able to attract the best talent locally

    Bloggers the Solution to our perennial problems lies in SportPesa paying salaries and allowances of players and TB directly into their bank accounts. All players both foreign and domestic must operate bank accounts for this purpose. EC on their side can get their gratuity payments from the sponsor for paying themselves atleast if they squander that amongst themselves the team will remain unaffected. We can then demand gate collections monies take care of training venue charges monthly. If this is adapted we will be home and dry in the interim as we await implementing constitutional changes and complying to the Sports Act requirements complete with an EC overhaul in which i am willing to succeed Ambrose Rachier and guide GM into a new Era of professionalism and Prosperity…

      @Jasego, why can’t players be paid directly into their bank accounts? Surely the entire EC including the imbeciles like Nyangi and Omondi are big let down to the entire Gor Mahia fraternity and stakeholders. Salaries and allowances should be paid directly into the individual bank account of players.

    Jakoyo has no powers to do anything for Gor..he is a fellow blogger like me and you…the most he can do is post his comments here as we all do.

    It’s a pity that year in year out we always find ourselves in the same mess.Nothing ever seems to change.

    One wonders why sponsors who come on board engage themselves in the same mess as opposed to making things better and more workable!!

      @Oswozo those sponsorship deals are shrouded in secrecy and kickbacks such that players welfare come bottom last in the order of priorities. Try telling SportPesa CEO like i did to pay players directly and he tells you the contract is between them and GM not players hence they can’t do that without EC authorization. Now go try get that EC Authorization for players to be paid directly and you will know the literal meaning of what it is to squeeze water from a stone…

    The perennial silence of Gor ‘patron’ is just too loud. Why does he only appear when things seem well?After all his influence can drastically change things positively unless he has used the same influence to be part of the rot in Gor. Players should surerly not miss salaries, it very sad indeed.

    The way I see it, this there’s going to be big money contest here with the entry of Mt Kenya tycoons in to the game and any team without proper sponsorship structures like this one of ours should just fold up, nobody is going to look in their direction, good players will leave for the better endowed teams and none will be willing to come in. What’s in a name if after 50 years we have not managed to build any protective developmental structures around it? Nothing, just fold up to save us further heartache

    The centre can no longer hold, I think it’s high time the EC threw in the towel. It’s pointless having a management that is insensitive to real issues of the club. It’s even disheartening that this same team is devided and the contentious issue that is alleged to have devided them is club finances management or rather, mismanagement. Too sad

    Foreign players are paid more than us local players even though we produce at a higher level than them. Enough is enough!

      Oh no,give examples as e.g goals scored,motm next you’ll degenerate into the jodala nonsense.For the last 10years there has been one constant and mandatory signature to GM’s bank account(s)=MUGABE’s so how do you blame the likes of nyangi,shida ni MUGABE

      Wacha kuchoza ma fans, payment is based on the contract each player has with the team and this salaries is never the same all over the world.

      I also think performing local players should also try professional football in other countries for the sake of our national team

      Toa siasa hapa wewe…You signed a contract after negotiating personal terms accompanied by your agent or representative if you have one. Incitement ndio hatutaki hapa Gor. If you outperform the foreign players as you claim how come you are not on other teams radar like Simba SC who want Kahata? You are the ilks of Shaban Odhoji who belong on loan this season to make way for better players…

    If indeed you are a Gor player,to which I highly doubt,then identify yourself.But of course you won’t..why? because you are not..and if at all you are,you are not worth the mention…. otherwise you would have been on other teams radar as has been mentioned by jasego!

    Gor Mahia can no longer be run as a community club. The Primary Customers of Gor Mahia are – Players, Players, Players. Supporting Customers are Coaches, EC, Fans, and Volunteers. Planning is key because it comes with budget, like, the number of tournaments per year the team will go to. How many games per year are your players going to play? Structure should be designed to enhance
    execution of the clubs strategy. The culture today is not the same as it was ten to fifteen years ago. Those in positions of leadership must be proficient in communication and transparent by utilizing all available tools. There needs to be a responsible body tasked with marketing, sponsorships and
    overall administration of the Club. In Gor Mahia, there are so many elected offices that do not serve the interest of club but somethings else. A soccer club is a business and must be run like one. Whether the organization has professionals running it or not, it is still needs to run like a business.

    Well sad news is that our beloved Sir Kerr has tendered his resignation to Club Chairman who has said the TB led by Zico will take charge as we take ample time to source for a good replacement. What is bemusing is that Kerr has taken a better coaching offer to a team yet to be disclosed in what he refers to as greener pastures. Well thank you Sir for the back to back titles and amiable lively character..Such is football coaches and players and officials come and go only the club and her diehard supporters remain forever….

      We are a stepping stone for development of other coaches/players…and we remain the same.or worse like now. We never learn , we keep on begging and belong to poor management.

    Zico is the wrong choice and the beating will start immediately and this might make his stay in Gor Mahia too short and regrettable.
