Gor Mahia football club chairman Ambrose Rachier has announced that he is set to leave the club in December this year.
He cites the reason as wanting to create space for his critics to take the leadership mantle so as to understand the struggles he underwent during his tenure.
“I must leave Gor at the end of the year. I have not groomed my successor but will leave it to the members to decide. It’s my very good wish to see my fierce critics come and take over and I wish they can be elected,” he said.
Rachier took over leadership from Erastus Okul, 10 years ago and has earned praise from section of fans who commend his positive influence on the club.
Under his tenure, Gor has clinched two SportPesa Super Cup titles, four KPL Super Cups, two KPL top eight titles and two President’s cups.
His critics on the other hand accuse him of failing to construct a stadium for the club and not paying bonuses and allowances to the players.
In September 2018, he was accused of allegedly pocketing Sh7-12 million which was supposed to be paid to the club following the sale of Ugandan defender Godfrey Walusimbi to South Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs.
Rachier has however asserted that he will ensure Gor Mahia builds a stadium before he packs up and leaves office.
