Gor Mahia had a huge financial burden before the President offered support – having to navigate through local and continental matches in a short period of time.

They travel to Algeria on Monday for their crunch Group D CAF Confederation tie against USM Alger, a fixture they have to win if they want to progress further in continental football.
