Kogalo must always march forward as we did in 1973

Milimani 89 -Strathmore 93
Contentious Club elections in 1973
The Creation of Gor Mahia United FC
The largest mass exodus at the club.
Losing Ouma “Chege” especially hit the fans hard. He had been the best striker in the country for a decade and scored with amazing consistency. Sianga had been the national team goalkeeper for an incredible 8 years. Siranga, Hatari and Yongo were all excellent players with the latter at one point becoming player-coach of Harambee stars.
Resurgent Gor Mahia
These lessons apply today

The problem with the current officials is transparency is lacking..look at the issue of membership there ie no campaign for membership drive bcos after getting the initial membership money they went to slumber.We really dont know the truth about how those players are leaving eg how much did they get from Akumus loan sale and what of Ade? Financially there is a problem. Remember nowadays football is money. So far the fans are really assisting the team but for the officials its yet to b seen.
This is good article….but the question posed by KCC. Coach is equally puzzling, has gor mahia evolved ?……………George Nsimbe, the Kampala City Council (KCC) coach insists their CECAFA club championship rivals Gor Mahia wont pose much challenge to the side.
Nsimbe who is keen to add a CECAFA cup to his CV, says he has been watching a lot of Kenyan league matches and therefore knows how to approach the Kenyan champions.
-I believe our group is tough but Gor Mahia is not a problem to me. I have been watching the Kenyan league on TV and I know how to confront them. APR is the problem because you know clubs have evolved their approach to playing, Nsimbe was quoted telling a leading Ugandan daily.
GOR MAHIA STYLE. OF FOOTBALL IS OLD SKOOL AND. PREDICTABLE!!!!!!
A nice piece and long live kogalo!
i think we need to support kogalo but the entire office is letting us down ,managing a team like kogalo you need to be serious
we need a full time marketing officer at GOR MAHIA.GOR is not a small club…we need serious people at KOGALO.
Even when you know this club’s history, you can learn something new.
An incredible piece. I thought Ogola Kadir came from Nakuru AllStars and not Bata Bullets.
Kogalo for ever!!
Rachier knows this things am sure
excellent piece, i cant concur more with the chairman on that great quote, mine is just to add that as long as luo men procreate, no matter the tribe of the partner, for at the end of the day the offspring is luo, and luos MUST be kogalo fans from the first day they enter the world to their last breath. kogalo will forever have passionate fans in all generations who have the genes of the founder officials and fans who safeguarded kogalos interest through blood and sweat. thus you can bet that the current crop would do exactly what their predesecors did to safeguard GODS GOR.
personaly i have no much issue with the EC infact i feel that they are doing a great job under current conditions. not that i condone corrupt practices but i avoid blanket and baseless condemnations. i feel its unfair for he EC to be accused (blanketly). surely we dont expect the EC to print all over town the amount that players are sold for,courtesy tells me that that should appear on the balance sheet. to me, my beef with the official is when the team is not performing for i know that dismal performance is a result of several factors club management being at the heart of it. so guys, relax and EC dont even dream of being complacent, it same forest only different monkeys.
Great article for the history lovers. Only one point of correction, the game against Abaluhya in 75 was infact their second game having earlier dispatched Prison 4-1
