Eliud Owalo donates K’Ogalo 500k before Mashemeji Derby

Posted on :

In November 2023, Owalo, through his foundation, donated a bus valued at Ksh20 million to K’Ogalo. The team received a handsome token of half a million from ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo to boost their morale and facilitate their preparations for the anticipated Mashemeji derby scheduled for Sunday, April 21, 2024, at Nyayo Stadium. Plans for the mouthwatering clash between arch-rivals Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards have hit a notch higher as Gor players receive financial support.

Owalo also paid a courtesy call on Gor Mahia FC for a chat with the players at their MPESA Academy training ground in Thika ahead of the weekend’s Mashemeji Derby against AFC Leopards. The acquisition of the bus was a relief to Gor Mahia, who faced a turbulent period earlier when the previous bus was sold by auctioneers. Gor Mahia’s coach, Johnathan McKinstry, expressed gratitude towards CS Owalo, acknowledging the impact the donation would have on the club’s travel arrangements.

AFC Leopards, who recently collected millions from their birthday anniversary staged at Nyayo Stadium, also received donations that will be utilized to support the team for the rest of the season. With both clubs financially endowed at the moment, the Mashemeji Derby is expected to be a thrilling encounter with both teams vying for the maximum three points at stake. Nyayo Stadium has already been prepared to host the country’s biggest derby on Sunday, with regular fans charged Ksh300 while VIP fans will pay Ksh1,000.
