The hosts came into the match hoping to start the campaign well, but had to do without the services of regulars Ernest Wendo and Francis Mustafa, who were suspended after accumulating two yellow cards from the previous matches.
Gor Mahia got their goals through Jacques Tuyisenge, who scored two, Nicholas Kipkirui and Dennis Oliech while Ibrahim Hassan scored twice for Zamalek.
And here is what Kenyan said after the huge win on home soil.
Gor Mahia nail Zamalek 4-2. Good to see other clubs on the continent putting the North African clubs to the sword this weekend. Balance of power in club football too strong towards the north.— Michael Oti Adjei (@OtiAdjei) February 3, 2019
