Goal can report that K'Ogalo chairman on Thursday gave out cash money to assistant Bobby Ogolla to pay players' as training and winning allowances
Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier was forced to drive to City Stadium on Thursday and settle players’ allowances in a bid to end a 'go slow' that had threatened to derail team’s push for a consecutive Kenyan Premier League title.
Rachier arrived at training ground early in the morning and gave out some money to assistant coach Bob Ogolla to hand over to the players.
The players are reported to have gone on a go slow since Monday protesting at unpaid training and winning allowances.
But Rachier denied reports of a go slow insisting that all is well in camp. “It is true that we owe them some money and I have cleared a bit of it on Thursday morning. No player went on strike.
"All they did was express concern over the delay in paying what we owed them and this has been sorted out and they are all happy and looking forward to Sunday’s game against Sony Sugar,” Rachier told Goal.
Report emerged on Wednesday that Gor Mahia players’ were planning to boycott their league match against Sony Sugar unless their training allowances were paid in full.
The move by the players’ comes days after the team arrived from a disastrous outing in Cecafa Kagame Cup where they featured in four matches and won none.
