K’Ogalo CEO Omondi Aduda has revealed to Goal that the team will leave Nairobi for Johannesburg at 8pm ahead of the return leg to be played at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday (at 8pm Kenyan time).
“We have tentatively set our departure to South Africa at 8pm today (Tuesday). The government is yet to give us air tickets for the trip but we are working to sort out the issue. We don’t know who is telling the truth.
“The government says they had given FKF money for our tickets but when we ask FKF they say they never received any sum of money from Govt.
“We don’t want to face Caf sanctions by missing the match and remember we also have a good advantage going into the reverse fixture. We will do our best to make the trip to South Africa.”
Aduda also confirmed that two players – Jacques Tuyisenge and Ephraim Guikan – will not travel after they were denied visas while they are still sorting out the issue of Francis Kahata.
We will miss the services of Tuyisenge and Guikan. They have been denied visas because they cannot produce one year work permit.
"For Kahata, we managed to get a new passport for him and returned his papers are now waiting to see if they will give him the same,” Gor Mahia CEO Omondi Aduda told Goal on Tuesday.
Tuyisenge scored Gor Mahia's goal against the South African side during the first leg played at Machakos.
