Wehliye: Saudi bank economist is interested in succeeding Gor Mahia’s Rachier


Kenyan-born economist insists on publicizing his desire to lead local heavyweights

Mohamed Wehliye, a senior adviser to the Central Bank of Saudi Arabia, has escalated his interest in replacing Ambrose Rachier as chairman of Gor Mahia.

Well-known Kenyan economist Velier is an outspoken supporter of the Kenya Football Association Super League club and has never shy away from expressing interest in the chairmanship.

In a recent tweet, Velier joked that President Uhuru Kenyatta issued a statement on June 1, suggesting that he was the next chairman of Gore Mahia.

The President is leading Kenya to celebrate her 58th Madaraka Day-an annual celebration to commemorate Kenya’s independence from Britain in 1964.

This year’s award ceremony was held in Kisumu, a city where Golmasia has a huge support base.

“What did the president say in his Madarakka Day speech? They said I will take over the leadership of Gor Mahia, and this is how I won,” economists wrote on Twitter.
