, NAIROBI, August 14 – One of Kenya’s traditional football clubs, Gor Mahia has unveiled a 30-year strategic plan to meet the challenges and management of the club.

Addressing the press on Wednesday, Gor Secretary General Vincent Kodera said that they had prepared a strategy to rejuvenate the club to a higher level.

"There has been no election in the past seven years but it has been a miracle for the club to stand on its feet," Kodera said.

Gor, popularly known as "Kogalo" is facing some serious challenges on and off the field.   The club has registered poor results in three consecutive matches in the Kenya Premier League.

"We had accrued debts amounting to about Sh6 million, which included players’ allowances, wages of our previous coaches and source for new equipment of our players which had been dilapidated, torn down or has been stolen,” he said.

The Club’s Treasurer Merita Ombuor said that they aim to put the Club back to its past glory and transform it to be the best club in the country in the next ten years.

“We have a plan to set up a permanent playing ground and we have several investors both locally and foreigners who are willing to work with us in setting up a stadium," she said.
