    Mbori was the first Chairman I saw at the club and one of the few chairmen who left an impact on the club. He will be rememebered.

  • When will Ambrose Rachier hold aloft the CECAFA club (or better still the CAF) trophy? TROPHIES are the main hallmark of a club & hence the chairman-LOCALLY, REGIONALLY & CONTINENTALLY. For me,and most bloggers, its always about GMFC’s success never anything personal that’s why i have asked WHEN not IF.Let AR put his long experience to good use. RIP JATELO ZACK MBORI.

      Good question Oduor12 . I would be happy if Kogalo can even reach the group stage of Africa champions league.

    The only Chairman to have resigned and left the club at its highest order- 1988 after clinching Mandela Cup , a continental trophy. Kudos, Jaduong. You led by example that the likes of AR should follow.
