Just In: Two Gor Mahia Players Detained in Congo After CAF Competition

Gor Mahia was in Congo Brazzaville where they had a match against the country's champions AS Otoho d'Oyo on Sunday, November 28. Kogalo were beaten one-nil with a return match this weekend in Nairobi.

The record champions are already in the country, however, two of its players have been detained after they tested positive for Covid-19 infection. Burundian striker Jules Ulimwengu and combative midfielder John Ochieng' are the affected lot.

The two will remain in Congo for eight days, meaning they will probably miss the return leg to be played on Saturday, December 5 at Nyayo National Stadium. The team has disputed the Covid-19 results saying the affected players were negative before leaving Kenya.

"I'm still in Congo trying to sort out this situation. It is unfortunate, but hopefully, we can get a solution to the matter. There is no Kenyan embassy here, but I'm continuing to follow up so that this issue can be sorted,” Gor Mahia's Sporting Director Lordvick Aduda said.
