Uganda international  striker, Juma Balinya is set to ditch Kenyan defending champions  Gor Mahia  over  unpaid   wages.

Juma joined  the Kenyan league  defending champions  in January after terminating a  2 year  running contract with Young Africans Football club  from  Tanzania over  unpaid  salary. After only four months  at Gor Mahia where he thought he  would  settle his  head down, the same situation   he faced in Tanzania seems  to force him to end his  marriage  with  K’Ogalo  prematurely  as the  club is also  having  financial constraints.

Reliable sources  have confirmed  to that though   Gor Mahia  is  having  financial problems  after  the termination  of  their  sponsorship deal  with  SportsPesa  they  are willing to  let him go for free.

This could  turn out to be  Juma’s blessing in  disguise as reports in South Africa have confirmed  that the 28 year old  is in advanced  negotiations with  Clinton  Larsen  coached  side Polokwane City  fc. However,  the Ugandan  striker will  have to wait for next season  to join  Polokwane  side.If the deal materialises  Balinya  will become  the second  Ugandan  to don Polokwane  Jersey  after Boban Zirintusa did so in 2016.

In Uganda,  he previously  featured  for Vipers SC and Police  Fc excelling at the  latter  club in  2018-2019 Uganda premier league  season where he scored  19 goals  to take the top scorers  accolade.
