Reprieve for Gor Mahia as Machakos Governor lifts directive banning team from playing in Kenyatta Stadium

Gor Mahia have been handed a reprieve ahead of their CAF Champions League campaign after Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua lifted a ban imposed on the club on the use of the Kenyatta Stadium.

Mutua had ordered a ban on the 16-time Premier League champions after a section of the fans went on destructive rampage around the town following their loss to Sofapaka in their run-up to the league title in 2014.

Gor Mahia will be required to pay a Sh1mn goodwill fee to the county government following the lifting of the ban.
