Gor Mahia vows to punish Sserunkuma for absconding duty

K’Ogalo secretary George Bwana reveals to Goal that they are surprised the Ugandan striker sneaked out to Europe for trials without club's notion

Gor Mahia have announced they will take disciplinary action against Ugandan striker Dan Sserunkuma for absconding duty.

The club's Secretary General George Bwana told Goal on Tuesday that they are surprised by media reports indicating that the player is currently in Europe for trials.

"We heard of his move to Europe from his agent who called our chairman (Ambrose Rachier) but this is unacceptable since we have not given him permission to move.

“He still has one and half years to go on his contract and he cannot just walk out of the club like that," said Bwana.

Bwana added:"We will certainly take disciplinary action against him when he returns. We don’t care and are not interested which side of Europe he sneaked out to but I want to assure that no deal will be completed until he (Sserunkuma) gets clearance from Gor Mahia."

Bwana further said the club has no intention of releasing the Ugandan forward considering that they are chasing the league title.

"With reports that Rama Salim could move, there is no way we will release Sserunkuma as well. This are our key players and it is the wrong time to let them go considering we are chasing the league title.”

It also emerged on Tuesday that Rama Salim has received an offer to join Qatar-based Division Two side - Al Markhiya FC - but Bwana insists the club is yet to officially write to Gor Mahia on the same.
