Gor Mahia chairmanship race hots up

02 December 2013, 10:52

Nairobi - Eric Adede, who is vying for the chairmanship of Gor Mahia, has expressed disappointment at the delayed announcement of the club’s election date.

He added that he was no longer sure whether the elections would still be conducted on December 15 as earlier announced.

He demanded that the elections be held within the next two weeks noting that a postponement of the elections date would be a “scheme to loot the elections.”

Speaking in Thika, he accused the current leadership of the club from failing to curb hooliganism within the club’s fans.

“We want Gor Mahia to be placed on map where it is supposed be and the only way to do this is by making it attractive. We cannot attract anybody with the kind of hooliganism that we are having in the club right now, you will just be stumped out, and there is no question about this. I have said and told everybody if hooliganism is your policy then I am not your candidate,” he told the side’s followers.

Adede said that he would ensure that the club’s funds were well utilized and fund raise over KES 1 billion (about US$ 11,5) for the construction of a 35 000 capacity stadium that would also be carpeted.

He further pledged to ensure players’ rights were safeguarded.

Gor Mahia were recently crowned the Tusker Premier League champions after ending an 18-year drought.
