Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has stuck to his ways once again dishing out Ksh 1 million to Gor Mahia players ahead of their Sunday evening CAF Confederations Cup clash with RS Berkane here in Morocco.
Citizen DigitalÂ has exclusively learnt that the governor wired some Ksh. 500,000 to the team captain Haron Shakava to receive on behalf of the players via Western Union, with a promise that theÂ balance will be wired tomorrow (Monday).
âGor Mahia is a club representing Kenya. It is unfortunate that they had travel challenges. I was requested to boost their morale ahead of the game tonight, so I have sent the players 1 million shillings. It doesnât matter if they win or lose tonight, they are our team in the competition,âSonko said.

Gor âs camp has been rocked following disjointed travel plans. Governor Sonko has in the past run to the rescue of the team, buying them air-tickets to honour intentional matches.
