K’Ogalo players stayed away from using the dressing room at National Stadium insisting that Azam FC had planted ‘juju’

Gor Mahia have apologized to Cecafa organizers for failure to use the dressing room during their match against Azam.

K’Ogalo players stayed away from using the dressing room at National Stadium in Dar es Salaam insisting that Azam had planted ‘juju’ and ended up losing 2-0 in the semi-final clash.

However, Gor Mahia Team Manager Jolawi Abondo has sent an apology over the incident.

“We are very sorry that the team refused to enter the dressing room. We must appreciate the good accommodation, transport and refereeing we experienced at the tournament and it was not wise to skip using the dressing room.”

Obondo said Gor Mahia regretted having bowed to “local Tanzanian advise” that their opponents, Azam, might have “doctored” the atmosphere in the changing rooms.

Gor Mahia will face JKU from Zanzibar in the third place play-off on Friday.
