Zedekiah “Zico” Otieno accuses Gor Mahia legends of sabotage

A shocking statement that’s expected to cause a stir, if not controversy, in the local soccer scene, has just been issued by longtime Gor tactician, Zedekiah “Zico” Otieno. Zico, who is himself a Gor Mahia legend, has pointed an accusing finger at some of the club’s most iconic names such as Austin ”Makamu” Oduor who is also Divock Origi’s uncle, Tobias ”Jua Kali” Ochola and even the great Peter Dawo who led Gor to their biggest footballing achievement so far; their CAF Cup Winners victory after scoring against Tunisian giants Esperance.

Ziko was appearing on KTN’s sports documentary show, Sports Legend.

He shared how, after signing with Gor Mahia first in 1988, he got a chance to play in 1989. His first game was against a team known as Vikers in Isiolo. Back then, a team would play two games during the weekend, and so the following day, he faced Stima. At the time, the coach was Jack Johnson. The Stima game was so awful for him that during halftime, none other than his own teammates were sabotaging him, telling the coach to substitute him.

He confessed that this was very dispiriting for him, but he got encouragement from the fact that the coach stood by him and ignored calls from his players.

It will be remembered that the 1989 squad that Zico was talking about was the same one that compromised to people such as David Ochieng’, Ahmed Shero and Valentine Odongo, Isaiah Omondi ‘Janabi’, Tom Gundo, George Otieno ‘Solo’, Peter Otieno Bassanga, John Bobby Ogolla, Jaffer Mwidau, Tobias Ocholla ‘Juakali’ and captain Austin Oduor ‘Makamu’, Abass Magongo, Charles Otieno, George Onyango Fundi, Peter Ochieng ‘Pierre’ and George Odembo Nyangi “Artillery”, Dan Miswa, Hezbon Omollo, Anthony Ndolo, Sammy Onyango, Ben Oloo ‘Breakdance’ and Peter ‘Omuga’ Dawo.

The team, under coach Maurice Ochieng’ and Dane Jack Johnson as technical director, beat Tunisian giants Esperance on away goals after both teams tied 3-3 aggregate to lift the title.

The feat remains unrivaled to date.
