Gor Mahia official in a spat with women rep aspirant over club jersey

A Gor Mahia official has blasted a parliamentary aspirant who attended the finals of an off season football tournament while donning the club’s replica jersey.

Club treasurer Sally Bolo took to social media on Monday to vent out at Nairobi Women Representative Wangui Nganga for her actions saying the politician did it “only to market herself.”

Ms Wangui initiated this debate when she uploaded photos of herself on her Facebook page with the Gor Mahia jersey with an accompanying message:

“Today I visited the youths at Ziwani Starehe for the Koth Biro Tournament. I promised the youths that on clinching that seat I will take part fully on the sponsorship of the known tournament.”

Bolo, who was also in attendance at the function, seemed less than impressed by this message and promptly responded to the message on the very same platform saying:

“These are very cheap women with low self esteem. They had to wear our jersey to market themselves in order to be identified (looking for votes with identity). I saw her jana at Koth Biro tournament with the other one called Karen and both of them were in Gor Mahia jerseys. What surprised me was that when the tournament was being launched they were nowhere to be found but during the finals they came to distribute their fliers without even awarding the players or contributing something small to the kitty.”

Other aspiring politicians including, University of Nairobi student leader Babu Owino and Steve Mbogo, were in attendance at the event staged at the Umeme grounds in Ziwani.
