It takes five working days for one to acquire entry visa to South Africa but the club forwarded the documents a day later.
Goal has since learnt that the government was hesitant to release the money after the club presented 40 names instead.
The list which is Goal possession lists 40 names, including 18 players, five ‘supporters’ an FKF official, five National Executive Committee members, the CEO and the President.
Gor Mahia is carrying a 1-0 advantage going to the reverse fixture thanks to the goal from Rwandan striker Jacques Tuyisenge in the first leg.
