Gor players threaten to go on strike
26 January 2016, 12:59
Nairobi - A disgruntled group of Gor Mahia players have threatened to go on a strike over two months in unpaid wages.
The players could miss the upcoming invitational Red Sea Festival and
Tourism Tournament starting on Thursday at the Port Sudan Stadium, East
An unnamed squad member revealed that the players had grown frustrated and had demanded payment before playing again.
"It won't be possible to travel to Sudan for more than five days
without our salaries. The office has been promising to clear the arrears
since December yet they want us to keep adhering to their calls of
attending to the tournaments. This time round it won't be possible if
they don't pay us before departure," one of the players told Soka.
Club secretary general Ronald Ngala insinuated that the players were overreacting as it was only one month's salary owed.
"There's nothing like two month salary arrears. What we owe them is
one month salary. I understand that it's only the technical bench who
are owed two months and we are working on it," Ngala said.
"It's not about the Sudan trip, even if the same wasn't there, their
salaries would still be due. Today's only 18th and we will pay them."
