Government promises Harambee stars Ksh 50M if they beat Ethiopia on Sunday in AFCON Q

BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,12TH OCT 2018-The government  has promised to give the national football team, Harambee Stars, Sh50m if they qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Deputy president William Ruto  on Friday said the government has also released the Sh25 million requested by Football Kenya Federation for the team’s preparations ahead of round three and four qualification matches against Ethiopia.

Speaking at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani when he visited the players during their morning training session, Ruto said the whole country is behind the team as they prepare to face Ethiopia on Sunday at the same venue in the reverse fixture after a 0-0 draw in Bahir Dar on Wednesday.

Harambee Stars will edge closer to  securing a place in next year’s Cup of Nations in Cameroon with victory over the Walyia Antelopes.

“We had some delays with the
allowances but it has been resolved. We released the Sh25 million yesterday for
the team to prepare for this match,” said the Deputy President.

“You will get your bus next
month and if you win on Sunday, the government will give Sh50 million,”
Ruto added.

Harambee Stars coach Sebastien
Migne, who earlier last week issued FKF with a “pay me or I quit
notice” welcomed the government’s support.

“We value your support, without
you (government) it won’t be possible,” Migne said.

Harambee Stars top Group F on four
points, one ahead of second-placed Ghana.
