Gor clear up salary rumours



Allegations have been all over the media that Gor Mahia’s players have not been paid for two months now as they prepare to face off with Tusker FC in a game that could have implications on the title race.

The club’s vice chairman Faiz Ochieng says that the club’s sponsors, Tuzo, who are tasked with the role of settling the players’ pay, have not remitted the playing unit’s salaries for two months owing to a contractual breach but affirmed that the players have been paid in full with money gotten from other sources.

Ochieng said the reports in the media are sourced by the team’s detractors aimed at disorienting the players as they prepare for the match, which he termed as their season’s turning point, and confirmed that once the standoff with the sponsors is resolved all the outstanding dues will be cleared.

“The stories (that players have not been paid for two months) are baseless, far-fetched and very tarnishing to Gor Mahia as an entity and a brand,” he said.

“I have to admit that indeed the sponsors did not clear the players’ salaries for the past two months due to the breach after the Tokelezea na Jalee promotion,” he said.

“That, however, does not mean the players” dues were not paid, we found them the cash from other sources and at the moment I can confirm they are fully paid up.

” When the promotion issue is settled, the sponsors will clear the arrears. So I am calling on all detractors to steer clear of Gor Mahia issues at this crucial time.”

Tokelezea na Jalee, is a promotion aimed at seeing AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia fans win branded jackets (at a price) to don during the teams’ matches.
