Kenya’s ODM leader Raila Odinga is in the United Kingdom to join other Kenyans in supporting Gor Mahia ahead of Tuesday’s historic match against English Premier League side Everton FC.
Raila jetted in the UK on Monday morning accompanied by his daughter, Winnie Odinga ahead of the clash.
The match will be played at Everton’s Goodison Park and kicks off at 10 pm local time.
Raila, who is also Gor Mahia’s club patron, paid a courtesy call on the players during a special dinner in Liverpool where he encouraged them to offer their best and make the club and country proud.
“With @OfficialGMFC in Liverpool last evening ahead of their match today in which they will be taking on @Everton at Goodison Park we wish them all the best,” Raila tweeted on Tuesday.
The former Prime minister was joined by the club’s chairman Ambrose Rachier, Sports Principal secretary ambassador Kirimi Kaberia and Sportpesa CEO Ronald Karauri.
During the dinner, Karauri presented a token of Sh2.1 million to the players and technical bench ahead of the match.
The KPL champions booked their clash against Everton after winning the Sportpesa Super Cup tournament in June this year.
