Gor Mahia secretary general Sam Ocholla apologized for unlawfully endorsing the media and commercial rights deal between Star Times Media limited and Football Kenya Federation (FKF).
Ocholla and chairman Ambrose Rachier buried the hatchet and promised to work together to better Gor Mahia.
The two club chiefs have over the past few months not seen eye to eye following the controversial signing of the Startimes-FKF deal by Ocholla.
They however met and made things right on Tuesday and according to Rachier, Ocholla promised to withdraw his endorsement of the deal with FKF.
‘’We met on condition that my position on the StarTimes media endorsement was done unlawfully and I am happy the secretary general apolosized and promised to withdraw his endorsement. I have no other grudge with Mr. Ocholla and we have agreed to work together,’’ said Rachier as quoted by Citizen Digital.
“Already Gor Mahia haters are faulting our handshake for reasons known to them. Reconciliation is the way forward and we can’t live in wrangles throughout. I will give more details tomorrow (Thursday),” added Rachier.
Rachier has time and again insisted that Gor’s games will not be broadcasted by Startimes and despite various threats by FKF to his side, he has remained bullish.
Apart from Gor, Mathare United, ZOO Fc and Ulinzi Stars also opposed the FKF-Startimes deal.
Gor has played two games this season, winning one and losing one. The club won their opening game against Ulinzi Stars but later lost to Tusker FC.
