Kenya: Pay Me in Full or Forget About My Services, Mapigano Tells Gor


Gor Mahia’s Tanzanian goalkeeper David Mapigano has told the 18-time Kenyan Premier League (KPL) champions to pay him all his dues failure to which he will not return to the club.

The goalkeeper has also told the club’s bosses that he will not embark on any contractual negotiations before his salary arrears are paid in full.

Gor has not paid its players salaries running into seven months and there is a possibility of mass exodus of key players who are seeking greener pastures.

The non-payment of salaries at Gor has been occasioned by the exit of shirt sponsors SportPesa in August last year.

However, Mapigano who signed for K’Ogalo in July 2018 from Tanzanian club Singida United, has insisted that he will only return to Kenya from Tanzania and commit his future to Gor after receiving all money owed to him. He has a three-year contract with the 18-time champions which ends in July 2021.

“My coming back to Kenya is dependent on whether or not I get my money. It is simple, If I am not paid, I will not come back. Gor owes me a lot of money and I have given the club time to honour its promise but that has not happened. It will not be a good idea for me to come (back to Gor) and my family is suffering back here (in Tanzania) financially,” Mapigano told Nation Sport from his base in Arusha.

He said that he has got interest from a number of clubs in Tanzania and other countries, adding that he will sign for any of them in case Gor Mahia fail to act.
