Mike Sonko comes to Gor Mahia’s rescue

They were supposed to travel on Monday night

Sonko offered to pay for the teams air tickets to South Africa for a return fixture of the CAF- Confederation Cup match against Super Sport United.

The Kenya Premier League champions who are facing financial challenges were stranded after the Government failed to release funds for their air tickets.

Confirming the new development, Gor Mahia Chairman Ambrose Rachier said the Nairobi Governor had agreed to foot their air ticket bills.

“Governor Sonko has agreed to fend for our air tickets and as we are speaking our representatives are in his office,” he said.

The 16 time champions wanted tickets for 18 players, 5 members of the technical bench, a federation representative and 6 team officials.

The team was supposed to fly out on Monday but it was not possible as some of its team members failed to secure Visas.
