The squad are reportedly owed Sh3.5 million in wages and winning bonus for the three Kenyan Premier League matches they have contested in 2015.

"All we are asking for is our pay. We understand the dire financial situation the club is facing but it is also important that our needs as players are met," said one of the players who sough anonymity.

"We have families to feed. We also have other obligations to meet and that is why we are demanding our pay. We have players our part, now the management also needs to do its part."

Gor chairman Ambrose Rachier confirmed the unpaid monies, but assured the players the issue will be seen to swiftly.

"It is true we are lagging behind in payments but we are making all efforts to sort the situation," said Rachier.
