Gor Mahia dismiss strike reports despite unpaid wages

Gor Mahia have moved to quash reports that players have staged a strike over salary delay ahead of weekend's Kenyan Premier League match against bottom-placed Thika United.

Only two Gor players showed up for training on Monday morning, with the rest reportedly on strike over delay of their August salaries.

Club Chief Executive Officer Lordvick Aduda has dismissed suggestions that the squad are striking, but did acknowledge that the squad are yet to be paid last month's wages.

"These are baseless rumours," he told KweséESPN. "There's no [strike] in the team.

"We are just back from the international break, some of our players were outside the country with their national teams, some were in Harambee Stars camp," he added.

"When we are not a full house it doesn't mean we are on strike."

Gor Mahia have already clinched the 2018 KPL title with six matches to spare, and will represent the country in CAF Champions League next season.

"It's true, there's is a delay," he added. "We always pay our players on time, but we have an issue this time around which we are working around the clock to resolve."

Aduda further stated that some players missed training due to the lack of bus fare, but revealed that the issue is being addressed by the team's manager Jolawi Obondo.

"I understand some players have no bus fare and that's why they missed training," he concluded. "The team manager is addressing that issue, all will be well."

The Kenyan champions narrowly missed a Caf Confederation Cup quarter-final ticket after going down 2-1 to USM Alger on August 29 in Algeria.
