The 18 times Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia are set to unveil Keroche Breweries as their new sponsor.
Gor Mahia secured a multi-million deal with the Brewers after betting firm Sportpesa withdrew its operation in Kenya over tax evasion wrangles with the government.
Sportpesa has been reported on Saturday that they have shut down completely its operation in Kenya citing unconducive environment.
The club was already struggling to meet its financial obligations and is yet to pay its staff their August salaries owing to lack of funds.
According to Opera News, a source from the club said that the deal has been struck and will be made formal on Saturday morning at Moi International Sports Center Kasarani.
The deal is said to have been brokered by Gor Mahia Patron Raila Odinga who is a close friend to Keroche owner Tabitha Karanja.
The club spokesperson had hit the limelight after demanding a share of the late Tob Cohen’s property claiming that the billionaire was a fan of the team.
