Godfrey Walusimbi has finally ended a 40 day strike and is set to resume training with Kenyan champions Gor Mahia.

The Ugandan defender downed tools on March 16 after he accused Gor Mahia officials of failing to honour the contract.

Walusimbi skipped a crucial Caf Champions League return leg match against Esperance, a match that Gor Mahia lost by a solitary goal.

He also sat out against SuperSport United (home and away), insisting that he will only return to action if the club cleared all the arrears owed to him and his agent.

The two parties finally reached an agreement after the club honoured their end of the bargain. “Walusimbi’s agent has been fully paid today (Wednesday)  and he’s expected to report for training on Thursday,” Gor Mahia Organizing Secretary Judith Nyangi confirmed to Goal.

Walusimbi’s availability will be a good news for coach Dylan Kerr, who has been grappling with a weak defence of late due to injuries and suspensions.

Goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch became the latest casualty after he was red carded in the last league match against Chemelil Sugar.
