Prime donation to Gor

Thursday October 29, 2009

Gor Mahia football club is wearing the proverbial smile all the way to the bank thanks to Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Raila today gave Kogallo a personal donation of 2 million shillings to push the team through the local football league. During the presentation, Raila challenged community clubs to nurture a solid fan base to attract sponsors. He also challenged KPL teams to up their performances in order to woo fanatical support. Raila also touched on the National team Harambee Stars, asking Kenyans to be patient with them saying recent poor results should be perceived as football lessons with room for improvement. He however, steered clear of controversy surrounding the exclusion of key players for the return match against Nigeria, saying such decisions were within the discretion of the technical bench. Gor Mahia is one of the most popular clubs in the country and is the most decorated with 14 league titles and the only Kenya club ever to have won the Africa Cup Winners’ Cup.
