Gor Mahia raid Sony, Nairobi Stima as rebuilding continues
Gor Mahia is on a mission to rebuild the club with four more new signings ahead of the new season
Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia have continued with their rebuilding and have added on five more faces to the squad for the new season, just a few days after landing the signature of Rwandese international Djabel Imanishimwe.
The league champions have signed midfielder Tobias Otieno and defender Shura Abdallah from Sony Sugar while youngster Curtis Wekesa and National Super League top scorer Dennis Oalo have landed to their stable from Nairobi Stima.
Gor have also acquired the services of defender Elvis Ronack from Nzoia Sugar.
Otieno was a core figure in the Sony Sugar side that finished fifth last season under the stewardship of coach Patrick Odhiambo who has since joined Gor as assistant coach. The 20 year-old chalked nine assists for the sugar millers.
While Shura has penned a four year deal with Gor, Otieno has signed for a season, but renewable.
Meanwhile, Oalo comes in to Gor with a rich CV having banged home 24 goals for Stima while his counterpart Wekesa who is a Kenya Under-23 international chalked up nine goal and 15 assists.
Both have agreed to four-year contracts with the league champions.
K’Ogalo are also said to be after the signatures of Mathare United’s Cliff Nyakeya while the Sofapaka duo of Dennis Odhiambo and John Avire also top their priority list. According to sources, the two could be heavily persuaded to make the move as financial difficulties persist at Sofapaka.
The players are in arrears of up to four months in salaries and the situation is set to drive most players out of the club.
