Nairobi - Government and business officials are rolling the red carpet to newly-crowned league champions, Gor Mahia.
Days after they were confirmed Tusker Premier League kings at a glittering ceremony at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, the team has been invited to a number of functions.
The latest in the series of invitations is from the Nairobi Governor, Dr Evans Kidero, who hosted the team in his office and pledged to establish a monument for the club in Nairobi.
“Today (last evening), I invited the Tusker Premier League Champions Gor Mahia to my office to express my appreciation and congratulate them for winning the most coveted trophy in the country,” Kidero said.
He added that in remembrance of the late Gor Mahia, whom the team was named after, the Nairobi City Council would erect a monument by the end of next year.
Kidero also pledged to continue extending his support to the team while assuring that the County Government had set aside an unspecified amount of money that would be used to renovate the City Stadium.
The team uses the stadium as the venue for its home matches.
Gor Mahia is emerging from years of underachievement.
