Average foreign players are the reason for Gor Mahia's kes.5 M exorbitant monthly wage bill.

Fifa has ruled that the Nairobi club cannot register any new players until it has paid just over $30,000 to Ghana's Owusu Jackson.

Remember Jackson Owusu was at Gor Mahia for only 5 months yet he will be paid KES. 3,300,000 ($30,000). That translates to KES. 660,000 per month
Even TZ's Simba isn't paying such wages!
Was Owusu better than Lawrence Juma?

Cartels are killing Gor Mahia. The 3 permanent fixtures who seem to be indispensable are responsible for these schemes.
Cartels are using foreign players, merchandising and Paybills to fleece Gor Mahia stakeholders be they sponsors, members, fans, government, well-wishers.

Currently we have Adama, Sando Sando, Jules who I don't believe will justify the money paid as their salaries.

Is Adama better than Gad?

Ask yourself why some TB members/ employees never complain about non payment of salaries or will vie for FKF Presidency but come back to be recycled as Sporting Directors.

Solution Gor Mahia Fans should reject foreign players for the next two/ three seasons.

600,000 a month for an average player like Owusu is shocking

Jackson Owusu was entitled to a monthly salary of Ksh.190,000, a monthly allowance of Ksh.6,000, a signing fee of [Ksh.1 million] and a housing allowance of Ksh.10,000.

Owusu stayed at Gor Mahia for 5 months but is claiming payment for one year as per his contract. Gor Mahia officials failed to prove that they paid him even a cent.

Gor Mahia failed to prove that any of the alleged amounts has been transferred to the player’s bank account as well as considering the player’s comments on such proof of payments, the DRC judge came to the conclusion that the outstanding amounts are due to [Owusu] and should be paid by [the club]," read the ruling.

Cartels at work.
