NAIROBI, Kenya, August 29, 2019 – Gor Mahia has parted ways with their mercurial striker Dennis Oliech for misconduct and continuous absence from training.
Oliech has always been in the bad books both with his club and Harambee Stars. The trend has once again haunted him with the club opting to end the two years marriage as stipulated in his contract.
A letter from the club said owing to his serious and persistent cases of misconduct, the club Executive felt his services will not be required especially at this time when the club is engaged in International assignments and the grueling Kenya Premier League matches that resumes this weekend.
The statement, which is in our possession, said the player’s poor performance on the pitch and serial absence from training without permission from the club have led to his premature ouster from the record Kenyan champions, just months into his two-year deal.
Efforts by the club to reach out to Oliech to resume training has hit a snag with the playing opting to go underground despite having recovered from a previous injury.
The club has, however, officially informed the speedy striker of the step they have taken to terminate his contract.
The letter sad in part: “In pursuance of the provisions of Clause 6 of your Player Agreement Contract entered into with Gor Mahia Football Club we hereby write to advise you that we have terminated your contract with immediate effect.”
The grounds supporting the just cause are the statement states: “You are and have been guilty of serious misconduct and continued poor performance on the field of play especially you have without reason therefore and without prior permission from the Head Coach, the Team Manager or any other duly authorized Club Official absented yourself on numerous diverse days from training thereby denying the club the opportunity to field you as a striker.”
The striker is also accused of plunging into politics: “You have offered yourself as a candidate for popular political elections, a move that is likely to portray the club in bad light, cause disaffection among club’s supporters and fans, a step that is inconsistent with and inimical to your standing as the club’s football player. Further, you have posted a photograph of yourself in the social media donning the clubs jersey indicating your political intentions.”
We were not able to reach Club Chairman Ambrose Rachier for comment while the CEO Lordvick Aduda Omondi promised to revert back as he was engaged in a meeting.
