CORD Leader Raila Odinga is expected to officiate a sponsorship function in Kisumu where Kenya’s leading football team Gor Mahia FC will unveil a bread sponsor.
The deal which will make part of the local bread profits be shared with the football club which currently has no sponsor is said to have been brokered by a local Kisumu investor.
Sources privy to the deal indicate though the bread company has no capacity to fully sponsor the giant club, it will cater for the playing kits.
Odinga, unknown to many, has been a long time patron of Gor Mahia.
The last Gor Sonsor was Tuzo Milk of Brookside Dairy Ltd associated by President Uhuru Kenyatta. The Milk company terminated its contract with the club under unclear circumstances which both sides have been less forthcoming to divulge.
Odinga is also in Kisumu to attend the second devolution conference happening at Tom Mboya Labour College.
