The Gor Mahia youth team that is currently playing in a lower tier league has been facing acute financial difficulties. The team was founded by the Gor Mahia fans foundation. But starting in 2016, the club assumed control.
In 2016, the club was often late in disbursing funds. Today in 2017, the club has basically stopped funding the club which is now dependent on the goodwill of certain fans who have been contributing their hard earned money on a weekly basis.
Enter Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Mike Mbuvi ‘Sonko’ who has offered their youth team a sponsorship package which will push them until the end of the season.
Secretary general Ben Omondi and Organizing secretary Judith Nyangi both confirmed that Sonko would be funding the team and also paying for an ambulance at each match.
