Following reports that Kenya Premier League defending champions Gor Mahia are staring a possible CAF ban and heavy fine after their players ran amok against the referee at the end of CAF Confederation cup playoffs; second leg match against NAPSA Stars in Zambia.

The club's secretary general Samuel Ochola had moved to allay fears over a possible ban by the continental football governing body following their players' commotion with the referee. Ochola said that the club was aware of the report and they don't expect the wrath of CAF to be meted on them following the incidence. He retaliated that they are ready for anything and that they will follow the due course of law to ensure the matter is addressed.

"On the reported possible ban by CAF for skirmishes mentioned, we are alert and will pursue all the legal avenues to address the matters that arose, since it was not our fault. We didn't just walk away from all these happenings. We sat down together with Zambian federation, our federation's representative, head of delegation (myself) and other stakeholders and we deliberated. We hope nothing punitive would befall our team on this," Gor Mahia SG Samuel Ochola wrote on Gor Mahia and NAPSA second leg summary report.

Ochola exuded confident that he side was not to blame for the turmoil and that CAF won't take stern actions against the club. Source/Courtesy.

Gor Mahia lost the match 3-2 on aggregate after 2-2 draw in Zambia and 1-0 lose at home. They succumbed to a late penalty slotted home by Emmanuel Mayuka thanks to Geoffrey Ochieng lapse after he was deemed to have fouled Jimmy Mukeya in the penalty area by South Africa referee Lebalang Mokete.

This is even as infuriated Gor Mahia players descended on the match official after the final whistle following his late 96th minutes penalty. In a match that saw six extra (injury time) minutes added.

Meanwhile the 18 times champions shifts their attention to defending their KPL title and domestic shield cup following their exit in the CAF Confederation cup group stages qualification.
