Gor Mahia duo of goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch and captain Kenneth Muguna are being investigated by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) following a scuffle last week in their clash against Zambia side Napsa Stars.
Gor had protested a late penalty handed in the CAF Confederations Cup game as they lost on a 3-2 aggregate to the Zambians; a result that saw them denied a chance of making it to the group stage of the competition this season.
At full time, Gor Mahia players were said to have attacked the referee and used abusive language towards him as they expressed their displeasure at the level of officiating.
CAF has now gone for the offenders with a letter that partly noted: “The officials of the above-mentioned match (Napsa v Gor Mahia) indicated in their reports that: “After the match, Gor Mahia players No. 29 Oluoch Otieno Boniface and No. 10 Mugambi Muguna Kenneth attacked us and used abusive language against us.
“CAF has decided to implement the provisions of the Disciplinary code in terms of article 11 and to open investigations allowing your affiliated players to respond to the reported incident.
“Therefore, the club is requested to provide us with its comments within five days, namely on the 5th of March 2021 by the latest after which the matter will be submitted to the CAF Disciplinary board.”
Gor Mahia who have had a turbulent start to the season finds themselves struggling in the league and after falling to Nzoia Sugar FC last week, they have a date against Kakamega Homeboyz on Wednesday at the Bukhungu Grounds.
