Gor Mahia midfielders Rama Salim and Kevin Omondi will leave the country on Saturday for South Africa where they are expected to begin professional careers.
The two players will depart immediately after their Kenyan Premier League match against Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) at Kasarani.
According to Gor Mahia Deputy Secretary General Anima Okech, the club received requests from the two to be release after Saturday's match.
“They came to office and informed us that they will be leaving for South Africa after Saturday's match. We are resigned to losing them and have to begin looking for other options.”
It is not yet clear which club Rama (Salim) is headed to but Kevin Omondi attended trials at South African top side Ajax Cape Town two months ago. The absence of the two will be a major set-back for Gor Mahia as they seek to defend Kenyan Premier League title this season.
K'Ogalo have already lost midfield maestro Anthony 'Teddy' Akumu, who has been loaned to to Sudanese outfit Khartoum National. Akumu, who was a target for Tanzanian giants Simba SC, left club on a six month loan deal.
