In Summary
  • But above all, I thank God for Gor Mahia, the club that defines joy and happiness to us all.
  • The club that had brought pride to all Kenyans including our noisy neighbours who still call themselves giants who are still waiting for a league title two decades on.
  • May God bless Gor Mahia and bring more success to this great club.
  • We are the Mighty Gor Mahia!

Hail the Mighty Gor Mahia!

I can repeat that for as many times as I want because we are the champions of the Kenyan Premier League.

The coronation (or is it “Goronation”) of K’Ogalo at the lakeside city of Kisumu on Saturday was a perfect way to end a season that has been dogged by so much ups and downs from the walking out of SuperSport to the selfish insistence by Football Kenya Federation boss Nick Mwendwa to increase the number of teams to 18.

Then Brazillian coach Jose Marcello Ferreira walked out on us midway through the season creating a mini turmoil at the club.

But the coming of Dylan Kerr to take over brought in some fresh impetus as we went on to win our 16th title and fourth in five years.

Which raises some interesting question. Are we in our own league or are the other teams mere participants in our league.

Sample this: in 2012, we finished second losing out on the title on the final day courtesy of a one-all draw with Thika United. Had we won the game, we would have won the league.
