KUDOS TO GOR MAHIA F.C. FOR GIVING A GOOD FIGHT AND UNITING THE KENYAN NATION
By Eliud Owalo
It is with great humility and honour that I extend my appreciation to the entire Gor Mahia Football Club fraternity for emerging runners-up in the just concluded 2015 CECAFA Championships,which is no mean feat.
To me, it is still indeed a great day for Kenyan football and for Kenya as a Nation.It is my considered belief and conviction that all Kenyans of goodwill have been united behind the team and take pride in your exemplary performance culminating in a well-deserved No. 2 position which comes after a three-decade’ spell since Kogalo last won the regional Soccer Championship in Sudan in 1985.
Allow me to thank the Gor Mahia players for exhibiting resilience, great team spirit,strong and focused character throughout the competition.In the same vein,I commend the Green Army for their loyalty and unwavering support to the team despite playing many miles away from home.
It goes without saying that despite the painful loss after a long journey into the finals,,Gor Mahia has managed to pull our country together and given a ray of hope and inspiration to Kenya as a Nation .You have indeed been good ambassadors for the Kenyan Nation. Thank you for doing it for Kenya.
