In sponsoring the team to Brazil, President Kenyatta fulfilled the pledge he made a few months ago when the team won the CECAFA Challenge Cup.

“I made a personal pledge that I and my wife Margaret would sponsor our team to Brazil to give them the opportunity to watch the world cup as a way of encouraging and inspiring,” said the President.

The President underscored the Jubilee Governments’ commitment to supporting sports as one way of promoting the talents of the youth.

He disclosed that the Government would soon launch the National Lottery Sports Fund which will continuously support sports in the country.

“We are in the process of looking at different modalities to see how we can nurture our soccer team and other sports activities in the country,” President Kenyatta said.

He expressed his gratitude to the East African Breweries Company for their contribution of over Ksh 3.4 million in sponsorship of the national soccer team.

The President took the opportunity to caution Kenyans to be alert and security-conscious as they watch the World Cup matches.

Harambee Stars team captain Jerry Onyango thanked the President and the First Lady for their kind gesture, saying it has fulfilled their dream as a team.

“We thank the Government for the undying support it has been giving us. Through that support, the team managed to win the CECAFA and also made major progress during the Africa Cup qualifier,” Onyango said.

EABL’s Corporate Affairs Director Eric Kiniti said his company will continue to offer support to the team to achieve the best in soccer.
