Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko has pledged to pay stadium tickets for 1490 Kenyans, to go watch the Harambee Stars vs Super Eagles match on 5th June at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani.
For this he will spend almost half a million shillings.
The flamboyant politician has also pledged to give Harambee Stars Sh 1 million if they win, and Sh 200,000 for every goal scored.
Here was his Facebook post.
This is my motivation to our national team Harambee Stars as they face Nigeria’s Super Eagles 5th June, I’ll pay entrance fees for 1,490 fans. 85 wards×10 fans = 850 Fans, 17 constituencies×20 Fans = 340 Fans. An extra 300 Fans will be awarded tickets by Radio Maisha, Citizen & Jambo, each distributing tickets to 100 Fans. That should cost about 447,000/-. I’ll also add an extra 1 Million if we win & 200,000/- for every goal scored. I’ll need you guys to coordinate with your ward/county reps & MP’s to make this work.
