Gor Mahia extended their lead at the top of the table to four points following walkover decision after Mount Kenya United failed to show up at the Kenyatta Stadium for their round 25 match. The decision was met with after the officials and the Gor Mahia players waited for the bottom side for over 30 minutes.
Mount Kenya United players who are now almost assured of relegation this season, leaked information to the media citing that they have not been paid for close to half a year and would be going on a strike prior to the Gor Mahia assignment. The threats would soon Materialize into reality in what could turn out to be the final nail in their top-flight coffin.
For Gor Mahia they match on as they seek their third consecutive league title and their 6th in the last 7 seasons. The win comes with an added advantage of a day off for a squad that has been stretched to the limit so far this season. It means that side who were to play 6 matches in 11 days have their work cut off and can now recharge their batteries ahead of their next fixture which is against Tusker in two days time on Saturday.
For Mount Kenya United, only time will tell how damaged they are but the early signs are increasingly worrying!
