Ambrose Rachier, the Gor Mahia chairman has promised to pay all allowances owned to Gor Mahia players following their go slow in training.
For the last two weeks, the Kenya Premier League Champions have lost back to back matches due to their reluctance ahead of the crowning of 17th title record next week.
Rachier made it clear that he only leant of Godfrey Walusimbi’s deal when the player had already signed the contract and that after following up, Kaizer Chiefs were to pay Gor through the club’s account in two installments, first in August 2018 and second in January 2019.
“I got to learn for the first time of Walusimbi’s move to South Africa on Friday 11th August 2018 when I received a call from a Mr. Motaung Kaizer who after introducing himself informed me that as he was speaking to me Godfrey Walusimbi was seated before him,” An angry Rachier lamented.
Walusimbi who had a contract running, joined South African giants Kaizer Chiefs on a three-year deal August 30.
On the unpaid August salary, allowances and bonuses that saw players boycott training leading to the loss of two Kenyan Premier League matches, Rachier vowed that the club will pay by close of business Monday.
Rachier rubbished claims that some politicians came to the rescue of players welfare by paying their rent, stating that he had spoken with his captain Harun Shakava who said he was not aware of the allegations.
“For the avoidance of any misconception, I must state here that all the salaries, allowances and bonuses for the period up to and including the 31st July, 2018 have been duly paid in full. Appropriate arrangements were made for the payment of similar emoluments for the month of August 2018, but on account of certain unavoidable circumstances beyond our control the salaries were delayed. I emphasize that the laches in remittance were both unexpected and unanticipated,” he underscored.
