Goal understands Kenyatta on Tuesday gave out Sh2 m to K’Ogalo following a promise he made to the Kenyan champions after they visited State House
President Uhuru Kenyatta has honoured his pledge by donating Sh2 million he promised towards Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia.
A source within the club has exclusively revealed to Goal that the money was received by K’Ogalo chairman Ambrose Rachier during a private ceremony held at State House on Tuesday.
“The President in keeping with his word gave Gor Mahia Sh2million and promised that he is looking into getting them a sponsor soon,” revealed our source.
President Kenyatta made the pledge when Gor Mahia paid him a courtesy call at State House days after winning a record 14th Kenyan Premier League title last year. Gor Mahia will represent Kenya at African Champions League and have been drawn to face Madagascar champions CNAPS in preliminary rounds.
Gor Mahia will play first leg match at home between February 13 and 15 and face their opponents – three time Madagascar champions – a fortnight later in return leg fixture away.
K’Ogalo defeated Gabon’s US Bitam in preliminary phase of the competition last year, before suffering an 8-2 aggregate loss to Tunisia’s Esperance in the first round.
