Gor Mahia, champions of the Kenyan Premier League, proudly unveiled a new custom 42-seater bus valued at Sh20 million, attracting thrilled crowds in the streets of Nairobi on Saturday.

Despite the chilly and rainy morning, and the inevitable muddy puddles, hundreds of passionate K’Ogalo supporters joyfully accompanied the caravan with songs and dances.

Later at Moi Stadium in Kasarani, Owalo officially handed over the bus to the club.

Gor Mahia Unveils New Kits

The reigning champions have been utilizing recycled kits from two seasons ago since the start of the season.

However, the team is now set to receive new kits including replica jerseys for fans as confirmed by chairman Ambrose Rachier.

Better-organized clubs often ship in their new kits and replica jerseys for fans ahead of every new season.

“The delay is regrettable, but as I’ve said it’s our sponsor who was handling the process. It is also not easy shipping into the country sports equipment due to bureaucratic challenges,” Rachier said.

Designed by Macron in Bologna, the home kit incorporates the customary green colours with a thin piece of white strip running along the jersey’s sides and within its collar.

Elaborate patterns adorn the front of the shirt, showcasing the SportPesa logo.
