Vera Sidika shows her love for Ingwe during ‘Mashemeji’ derby

Socialite Vera Sidika found the allure of the Mashemeji Derby irresistible and did not find reason to hide her loyalty.

Sidika could not miss the afternoon of sumptuous local football in the clash between AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia.

She was at the Nyayo stadium on Sunday dressed in a fitting AFC Leopards replica jersey and white trousers.

Sidika’s support for AFC Leopards comes as no surprise. She was born Vera Nasike Wanjala in Namweyi, Bungoma county.

Her support for Ingwe started during her high school days in Namweyi Secondary school.

On Sunday, the video vixen sat among the Ingwe fans who leapt dramatically from the concrete slabs in the 53rd minute when Jacob Keli finished off Emmanuel Ngama’s heavy work to bring in the equalizer.

The derby, played under a charged atmosphere, ended 1-1.

The contest lived to its top billing as thousands of fans thronged the 30,000-seater stadium to cheer their teams and the boys paid back in kind, playing some tantalizing football.
