The administrator attacked the Federation for not following the proper process in recent decisions and said that the matter is with their legal team
Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier has fired Football Kenya president Nick Mwendwa for imposing a provisional suspension and imposing a fine on the club along with AFC Leopards without following established procedures.
On Sunday, August 1, the Federation announced the administrator, along with his counterpart from Ingwe, Dan Shikanda was suspended for the time being and the teams were fined a total of 10 million Ksh.
It happened after the two teams skipped the Mashemeji Derby of the Football Kenya Federation Premier League, which was scheduled for Saturday.
Fines and suspension are ‘trash’
“You can not make a decision without giving someone the opportunity to be heard, not even for natural justice,” Rachier said. Purpose.
“The chairmen had to be given an opportunity to be heard. How do you suspend someone without filing a complaint? Where are the terms of the fines and how were they achieved? Or are they people trying to conjure up 10 million Ksh? What is the basis of these fines? And do you fine someone you did not try, who did not convict you?
“There’s a disciplinary committee that is supposed to deal with us, and it’s at that point that we need to know what the claims are. You can not sentence without a trial, it’s a known process. “Penalty is a kind of punishment. But without hearing? It is the kind of rubbish that anyone can talk about and say he is talking about law.”
Rachier: A rule for dock points for Gor?
The administrator also commented on the issue of scoring the points of the two teams and asked why K’Ogalo should be the victim. He further advised Mwendwa on issues that he believes are important and that need to be addressed.
‘Let’s get to points now, this is something that only happened once in 2016 when we were on the verge of becoming champions, but three points were removed after it was said that fans beat them in a previous match carried and became Tusker champions, ‘Rachier continued. .
“Before and after that it never happened. Was the rule made for Gor Mahia? If you do not honor a match, your points are forfeited. We reflected on that and asked what the points were worth if your players were hungry. ? If your coaches are hungry? You can not convert points into money.
“We need to try to save the image of football and address serious issues. For example, the sponsors who left BetKing, we need to know why? This is what the president needs to address.
‘Another issue the president needs to address is the stadium; our players are seriously injured in stadiums that are strong, uncared for and unplayable. We do not understand why Nyayo is permanently closed, only open for rugby and international matches, the same with Kasarani Stadium. “
Rachier confirmed that the issue is with the lawyers of Gor Mahia, and the next step will be known in due course.
