Gor Mahia has sent team manager Jolawi Obondo on a month-long forced leave, amid reports the long-serving official could be on his way out of the club.

The move was confirmed by Gor secretary Sam Ochola who added Victor Nyaoro has been drafted in to act as team manager.

And in an interview with Nairobi News, Ochola also stopped short of confirming Obondo’s imminent departure.

Ochola claimed, but without providing evidence, that Obondo had something to do with the go-slows and player strikes that have bogged the club in recent times.

“We have sent him on leave but the Executive Committee will not allow him back, vowed Ocholla.

“His name has been mentioned in some of the things that taint the name of the club. I expect some senior players to defend him but as the club’s official spokesman, the leave is as good as letting him go.”

Gor players have been on a go slow in recent times with few attending the training session under new coach Jonathan McKinstry. The players, who spoke to Nairobi News off the record, say they are owed two months in salary arrears.”

Contacted, Obondo, who has served the club for the past two decades, said he will proceed on leave and wait for the next course of action.
