Ambrose Rachier Elected Unopposed As Gor Mahia Chairman

Ambrose Rachier

Ambrose Rachier has retained his position as Gor Mahia FC chairman after the seat failed to attract another aspirant at the close of the candidate filing deadline.

The development came to public light after the Electoral Board which was mandated to oversee the August 8 polls cleared candidates for all the four positions at stake and it emerged that no one apart from Ambrose Rachier expressed interest to contest for the top seat.

According to the Board’s Secretary, Kennedy Mbara, the position of Secretary-General will also not be contested as only one candidate, Samuel Ochola submitted his interest.

“We received submissions by the stated deadline date of 17th July and l can confirm two positions – Chair position and Secretary-General positions had only Ambrose Rachier and Ochola showing their interests respectively and that means.”

He said that the board had already kicked off the process of issuing them with certificates.

This, therefore means that only two positions of Vice-Chair and Treasurer will be up for grabs in line with the club’s constitution. Four candidates submitted their papers for the seats.

“Our preparations are on as scheduled for the August 8 event and we will have just two positions on the ballot – that’s Vice-Chair and Treasurer positions which have seen four candidates presenting their interests. We have Francis Wasuna and Sally Bolo for the Vice-Chair position and Chrispine Okoth will be taking on Dolfina Odhiambo for the Honorary Treasurer post.”

The elections, which will be done virtually have attracted a total of 567 voters qualified to participate.

Ambrose Otieno Rachier

•Vice- Chairman

1. Sally Bolo

2. Francis Erick Wasuna


Samuel Mathews Ochola Kwenda

•Honorary Treasury

1. Dolfina Achieng Odhiambo

2. Chrispine Omoga Okoth
