Gor Mahia slapped with another transfer ban

Gor Mahia have been handed a second Fifa transfer ban this year after once again failing to pay a former player what’s due to him.

Fifa have ruled that the Kenyan giants cannot register any new players until they have paid $30,000 to Ghana’s Owusu Jackson.

On Tuesday, the club signed a new player ahead of Fifa imposing its latest transfer ban on them.

The ruling comes after a finding by the football governing body that the club could not rely on a document claiming mutual termination of Jackson’s contract in order to avoid paying him after issues were raised concerning the signature on the document.

Previously, the club were banned from February until September and luckily, the club had settled its dues with two former players and a coach.

This latest ruling came after the 19-time league winners failed to transfer funds to Jackson within 45 days of being instructed to do so by Fifa’s Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC).

Following Jackson’s request to Fifa to have the matter followed up, football’s world governing body followed through with action.

“We wish to inform the parties that a ban from registering new players internationally has been implemented by Fifa as of today,” read a statement.

The ban will be lifted as soon as the club, which have now started a crowd funding campaign in a bid to assuage their financial crisis, pays Jackson all his dues.
