Uhuru sponsors Stars to Brazil

UHURU-AMROUCHE-2NAIROBI, Kenya, June 12 – President Uhuru Kenyatta, will sponsor the entire Harambee Stars squad and technical bench to Brazil to watch the World Cup.

The Head of State who will cater for their return tickets, accommodation and match tickets will meet the team on Friday at State House to officially hand them the sponsorship before they depart over the weekend.

This comes six months down the line after Kenyatta agreed to foot the head coach, Adel Amrouche’s salary for the next five years.

Kenya has never qualified for the World Cup and the trip will give Stars exposure as they seek to qualify for the 2015 Africa Nations Cup after sailing to the second round where they will play Lesotho on the weekend of July 18 and 20.

The winner over the two legs will join 2013 Afcon finalist Burkina Faso, Angola and Gabon in Group C for the final qualifiers.

The month long tournament kicked-off Thursday in Rio de Janeiro, with hosts Brazil taking on Croatia at Arena de Sao Paulo with the finals set for July 13.

Africa is represented in the global showpiece by Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Algeria and Nigeria.
