President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Amollo Oding will be the guest of honours at the Mashemeji derby on Madaraka Day exhibition match at the Nyayo national stadium tomorrow.
The duo, who have found new love in sports will be cheering on as AFC leopards will be hosting Gor Mahia to celebrate Madaraka Day on Wednesday afternoon.
Former champions Leopards and Gor mahia will be using the match as part of their preparations for the remaining Kenya Premier League that enters homestretch over the weekend.
Leopards who beat Kakamega Homeboyz on Sunday, will be tackling Nairobi City Stars and Nzoia Sugar in the remaining two matches of the league.
Leopards head coach Patrick Aussems is optimistic that they will register good results on Wednesday as a precursor for Kenya Premier league matches.
He said that the exhibition match is good because good fans will appreciate the victory.
“The game against Gor Mahia is very special for us and it is like a friendly match and after that we play Nairobi City Stars on Saturday and Nzoia FC to complete the league,” said Aussems after a 2-0 victory against league leaders Kakamega Homeboyz at the Bukhungu stadium on Sunday.
After the Sunday game, he said that the derby victory went to the best team, which played under too much pressure from the home side.
“As you well know, we are targeting top five or four in the league and we tried to pile pressure on our opponents, which paid off with the victory. But we lost too many balls in the first half but three points is what we needed,” he explained.
However, he chided his opponents saying that they made too much noise before the game, while he remained quiet.
At Bukhungu, Collins Shivachi scored first for Ingwe in the 3rd minute before Nigerian import Ojo Olaniyi sealed the victory in the 54th minute
