Gor Mahia FC can now have a peace of mind after the government of Kenya bailed it out .
President Uhuru Kenyatta has offered to pay tickets to a 30 man team that will do duty next Wednesday when the Kenyan giants take on USM Alger in a do or die clash .
The government provided the team’s air tickets to Algeria where they will be travelling to honour the decisive clash .
The tickets, costing about Sh6.3 million was given through the Ministry of Sports and treasurer Sally Bolo has voiced her appreciation on behalf of the club.
“We sincerely thank the President Uhuru Kenyatta and his government for offering such a big support to enable us to travel to Algeria to honour our CAF Confederations Cup match,” Bolo told the official Gor Mahia website.
The treasurer said that the good gesture was timely because the club has a huge financial burden that comes with playing the continental matches as well as going about its local assignments.
