Gor Mahia FC 'banned' by regional football body for Bad behaviour

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- A regional soccer body, the Council for East and Central Africa Football Associations (CECAFA) has suspended Kenyan Premier league side, Gor Mahia in all its activities for two years.

The Kenyan champions will be locked out of all regional tournaments after misbehaving at the just concluded CECAFA Kagame Cup in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Gor Mahia, who beat Zanzibar’s JKU 2-0 to claim the bronze medal and 10,000 U.S. dollars, have their players accused of breaking the tournament rules and will be ineligible to play in the competition in 2019 and 2020.

Gor has since forfeited their prize money after being ridiculed for refusing to pick up their bronze medals despite finishing third.

They demanded their allowances from the club officials.

CECAFA Secretary General Nicholas Musonye has since said Gor Mahia’s misbehavior will not be tolerated.

"We lined up according to our customs as CECAFA for medal presentations and we had our guests but Gor Mahia failed to come to the podium.

"That aside, they came here and declined the hotel, refused to use the dressing room and also failed to adhere to our customs," he said

Musonye condemned and warned Gor Mahia tactician Dylan Kerr for using offensive language to match officials and assured him that he will not misbehave in CECAFA tournaments for two years.

"Further, the CECAFA executive committee has warned Gor Mahia coach for his offensive language towards match officials.

"We have informed FKF to take action against the coach but for us, he will not misbehave in our tournaments for the next two years," visibly angered Musonye retorted.
