Gor Mahia is arguable the most supported football club in the country and with their storming run in the league this season, everybody, it seems, wants to have a piece of them including the opportunistic merchants on River Road, Nairobi.
On this occasion, our imaginative brothers and sisters along River Road – a street within the Nairobi’s Central Business District that produces all and sundry for sale – have created and are selling examination success cards bearing images of Gor Mahia players.
kpl.co.ke has seen some of the cards, meant for Standard Eight and Form Four students who are about to write their national exams, which bear the images of Ugandan import Dani Sserunkuma, fellow strike partner Mungai Kiongera and custodian and captain Jeremy Onyango ‘Jagoal’. Others have team photos.
“We are happy that almost everyone wants to be associated with our brand, and am even urging our brothers and sisters from (rival club) AFC Leopards to buy some for their siblings and children. There is no better way to wish success to your loved ones than using the images of the most successful team in the country,” Gor Mahia secretary general George Bwana said with a straight face.
He however added: “I advise those who wish to use the team’s images for commercial purposes to seek clearances from the club, as the players should also benefit. We have received some proposals on that matter already.”
Gor Mahia are currently leading the league table with five rounds of matches remaining and are placed in an excellent position to win their first league title in 18 years.
