Gor Mahia Sporting Director Lordvick Aduda has claimed that their opponents in the CAF Confederations Cup (CAFCC) Otoho d’Oyo practiced witchcraft before their game over the weekend in Congo Brazzaville.
Gor lost the game 1-0 after which the club’s officials took to the media to air their frustrations on what they termed as unfair treatment by the host club.
Gor missed the services of Jules Ulimwengu and midfielder John Ochieng after their Covid-19 results failed to return on time.
According to a source within Gor’s camp, everything looked a miss immediately the team landed at the Maya Maya International Airport in Brazzaville where they were subjected to lengthy Covid-19 procedures.
Gor’s Aduda has added his voice to the matter saying that their opponents employed the use of black magic.
“They used witchcraft and it was evident in the video we recorded before the game. It is sad and interesting these things are still being practiced in football in this era in Africa” Aduda told the Nation.
Despite Gor’s defeat, head coach Mark Harrison believes his side can turn things round in the return leg in Nairobi.
“Generally it was a good show by the players under the circumstances (lean squad and humid conditions) the results can be easily turned in the return leg match. The team is coming back today and embarking on early preparations,” said Harrison.
