Gor Mahia react to Rachier’s Freemasonry confession

Gor Mahia have disassociated itself from the activities of club chairman Ambrose Rachier who recently confessed to being into Freemasonry.

In an exclusive interview with NTV on Sunday, the long-serving football administrator confirmed he was a member of the secret cult while stressing it entailed charity activities and not devil worship.

In a rejoinder, the club’s Executive Committee (EC) says Rachier’s sentiments were of his personal opinion.

“The EC members, players, employees, and the Mighty Gor Mahia want to assure our fans we are not part of Freemason society and that our Chairman’s affiliation to that society is a personal journey as attested in the media,” said club Secretary General Sam Ochola.

Ocholla urged the fans to be patient as the management consults on the matter.

The EC consists of Rachier who’s led the club for 13 years, Francis Wasuna (vice-chairman), Dolphina Odhiambo (treasurer), and Ocholla.

Nairobi News understands news of Rachier’s association with Freemasonry could lead to his exit amid concerns over negative publicity. His longevity at the helm has earned him the moniker Mugabe, after the former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe, now deceased.

He was reelected unopposed in the 2020 polls for a four-year term.

K’Ogalo has won seven league titles under his watch and managed a quarter-final place in the Caf Confederation Cup.
