Nairobi - Gor Mahia has been slapped with a KES 119 million bill by the Kenya Revenue Authority, one which the club admits is finding difficult to fathom.
The bill is as a result of the government's move to tax athletes and sporting organizations.
The club though has reacted with shock to the declaration by the tax body of the amount owed to the public coffers and says it is looking for solutions to the matter.
" It is being looked at by the chairman and the relevant officials, assistant Secretary General Ronald Ngala said.
" Yes, it is a big bill but we believe that we are not entitled to pay tax and also the figure is not correct which is why there is a series of meetings going on, he added.
Gor have also complained as to why they are the only big sporting entity in the country to be slapped with the bill by the tax collection agency.
