Omondi withdraws resignation at Gor Mahia

Gor Mahia’s Secretary General Chris Omondi has rescinded his earlier decision to quit his role at the club, Nairobi News can exclusively reveal.

The official had quit in a huff over the weekend, via a text message to club officials, in which he claimed to be “frustrated” by the way his role in running the club affairs had been undermined by his colleagues.

But the development has since taken a new twist, with credible reports suggesting the club’s Executive Committee met earlier this week and talked him into changing his mind.

“We have convinced him to stay. He had genuine concerns that he shared with the whole technical committee and we tried to seek a middle ground on the issues of concern,” a source within the club told Nairobi News.

FINANCIAL CHALLENGES

Gor Mahia’s management is currently facing a backlash from its supporters who believe the club is not preparing for a congested season next term in the best possible way.

The development is also unlikely to arrest a myriad of financial challenges that are choking the popular club.

Currently, the playing staff is being owed close to two months in salary arrears, a financial shortfall that has led to the departure of two senior players Geoffrey ‘Baba’ Kizito and Dan Sserunkuma.

The financial crunch was occasioned by the withdrawal of the team’s only sponsor last season and has since placed the club in the red.

There are also emerging reports that the team could withdraw from competing in the Caf Africa Champions League in 2015.
