  • Rivals Gor Mahia have had their fair share of disputes with coaches; including the case of former coach Steve Polack who is yet to be paid his Sh1.4 million dues after Fifa’s three months’ notice elapsed last week. 
  • Our clubs have never realised that local labour laws can force employers to fulfil their contractual obligations. If that is to happen, AFC and Gor would wind up.
