Gor officials fight on Facebook as players stage go slow

By NAHASHON MUSUNGU September 13th, 2017 1 min read

An altercation between senior Gor Mahia officials has spilled over to social media, even as the club grapples with a go-slow by players over training allowances and bonuses.

This cat-fight involves the club’s treasurer, Sally Mbolo, and organizing secretary, Judith Nyangi, even though the former seems all too keen to play victim.

Nyangi started it all in a lengthy Facebook post on Wednesday as she accused Mbolo of, among other things, embezzling club funds, “pinching” players salaries, and booking the first team in sub-standard hotels patronized by “light-skinned ladies.”

“The treasurer has been misusing club money the way she wants,” Nyangi claimed.


“She has been colluding with the other cartel (sic) to deduct the player’s cash (salaries) without the knowledge of the Executive Committee. Mike Simiyu was paid Sh15,000 less last month and repeatedly this month. The chairman ordered the treasurer to immediately pay the boy’s full arrears which up to know hasn’t been done.

But when contacted, Mbolo declined to comment on the allegations.

“I cannot comment on nonsense but all these stories and especially on social media are not good for the club,” the treasurer explained.

This development comes as Gor Mahia players went on a go-slow for the second time inside a week. The squad is demanding accrued training allowances and match winning bonuses.
