In attendance was right honorable Raila Odinga, accompanied by Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o, Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja, Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, Sports PS Amb Kaberia and Government Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu.
Also in attendance was Sportpesa CEO Ronald Karauri and former footballers Joe Kadenge and Mohammed Abass.
