Kenyan government and Gor Mahia could be involved in a battle as reports suggest that the club is expected to visit the State House.

Although the club is currently in talks to organise the visit to president Uhuru Kenyatta, some club officials are not happy with the politically related move.

The battle comes after the club's most recent success where they lifted their 16th Kenyan Premier League title.

Nairobi News website indicates that some club officials are said to be against the idea of presenting the SportPesa Premier League trophy - their latest piece of silverware to Kenyatta.

According to Ben Omondi who is the club secretary general, he said he is not party to the arrangements for the planned State House visit.

"Let it be known that I am not involved in any plans whatsoever, to organise the team visit to State House. There is no such plan at the executive level to begin with. If at all there is, then it is an individual scheme of whoever it is," said Omondi.

"These are rumors being peddled by a multifaceted 'cartels' misguided elements with vested interest on the said subject."

Kenyatta has hosted sports personalities and teams at State House before, including Gor Mahia, and chances are that the club could yet again visit.
