Rwandan Jacques Tuyisenge and Ivorian Ephram Guikan will not travel to South Africa after they were denied visas

Gor Mahia will have to navigate their return leg of Caf Confederation Cup minus two strikers.

Rwandan Jacques Tuyisenge and Ivorian Ephram Guikan will not travel to South Africa after they were denied visas. Another player Francis Kahata could also miss out after his passport was turned down for having only two pages.

South African embassy is demanding for a one year work permit for Tuyisenge and Guikan while Kahata was asked to present a new passport.

“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.

On Monday, Gor Mahia were forced to postpone their trip to Pretoria citing frustration from the embassy.

“We are in bad shape making it hard for the team to fly to South Africa for the Caf Confederation Cup return leg planned for April 18, 2018,” confirmed secretary Ben Omondi in a statement obtained by Goal.

“We have done all within our means to get all travel documentations right in good time but things are not working as scheduled thus our travel to Pretoria is postponed.”

Tuyisenge scored Gor Mahia's goal against the South African side during the first leg played at Machakos.
