Former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has bailed out the cash strapped Gor Mahia FC before their Zambia trip which is scheduled for Sunday.
Mike Sonko who is still admitted at the Nairobi hospital under tight security coughed up a whopping 500,000 Kenya shillings in a bid to help Gor Mahia in their expenses.
“I want Gor Mahia fans to know that I still support and love them even under these trying conditions,” Sonko wrote a text to former K’Ogalo Organising Secretary, Judith Anyango.
Gor Mahia came close to qualify for the third time in their recent history to the money stage after displaying a superb game in the second tier of the continental showpiece. However, what seemed to be a done deal for the team was thwarted by one Emmanuel Mayuka who scored a last minute penalty in the 98th minute.

In the meantime, the trip was doubtful but the former prime minister Raila Odinga who also doubles as the former patron chartered a private plane for the team and they flied out the same day the match was scheduled.
