Gor Mahia chairman Rachier gives a statement on Walusimbi’s move to Keizer Chiefs

Following the surprise news of Gor Mahia defender Godfrey Walusimbi’s ‘move’ to South African side Keizer Chiefs, the club’s chairman Ambrose Rachier has given a word on what unfolded.

Rachier told the official Gor Mahia website that Walusimbi made it to South Africa without any sort of permission or notifying the club.

“Let it be known that Walusimbi made it to South Africa to meet Keizer Chiefs without the club’s permission or notifying the club on his travel intentions. It’s unfortunate that a player can just decide on his own to travel to engage another club without our knowledge,” said the chairman.

Gor Mahia only got a call from Chiefs chairman asking if they could negotiate on the player but the club through chairman Rachier declined the request saying that what the player and Keizer Chiefs did was wrong because a running contract is in place.

“I got an alert from someone that he was traveling and the next thing was a call from Keizer Chiefs chairman apologising for that step and requesting if we could talk on a possible move.

“I declined to discuss anything and told Chiefs chairman l will hold a meeting with my EC then we will know what step to take. What Walusimbi did was wrong… Keizer Chiefs too did something wrong because that’s player tapping which is against stipulated rules yet the player has a running contract. There are clear and accepted produres if they wanted the player,” he added.

Walusimbi played against Bandari in Mombasa on Tuesday and was reported to have made it to South Africa on Thursday.

  1. Let him go, at a good price.
    He has shown that he cannot be trusted. Even if he stays, his mind will not be here. He will damage the club. A fine and at least one million dollar prize tag will suffice.

    1. I concur .Let go.The best kogalo can do is to engage hard nosed lawyers for this negotiations to get a worthy deal.Walusimbi has been with Micho (Chiefs Manager) from their Uganda Cranes days).

  2. He is now untrustworthy,so the Gor can do is to devise a method on to how benefit on the deal.But at first we should report Keizer to FIFA coz that is disrespecting our club.

  3. Medie kagere went to Azam officially. Why should Walusimbi do that surely, Anyway may be he is excited to play Pro. Mr Chair kindly negotiate for his exit, let him leave his dream

  4. If you decide to leave a club without notifying the club officials then you are not fit to play for any club. I wish he never plays for the Mighty Gor Mahia. He is not a good player even after previous wrangles with the club he cannot change. Let him go. I think we have much talent to replace him.
