Gor Mahia's chairman Ambrose Rachier says the club has not received money from Kaizer Chiefs for the sale of the Ugandan defender Godfrey Walusimbi.

This comes after reports that Chiefs have paid the transfer fee of the Ugandan defender. However, Rachier says they are yet to receive money from Chiefs despite the player having registered with the Premier Soccer League and played a couple of games for Amakhosi.

“The global village that our world has become, I challenge the demagogues and prophets of doom to call Kaizer Chiefs to establish the veracity of what I have stated before engaging in cheap publicity gimmicks and infantile intercourse,” Rachier was quoted as saying by Goal.

“Kaizer Chiefs said that they paid us through Nedbank account in South Africa but we have since told them that we don’t hold any bank account in South Africa.

“Initially, they had agreed to pay the money within one to two weeks but we have not received a penny in any of the Gor Mahia accounts.”
