Mike Sonko rewarded the Harambee Stars with Ksh3 million cash following their win over Ethiopia at the Kasarani Stadium Sunday.
The Nairobi Governor had pledged the reward to the players if they pulled a win against the Waliyas in the Afcon 2019 qualifiers Group F return match.
And true to his word, he followed them into the dressing room to hand them the cash after emerging 3-0 winners.
“I honored my promise of a Ksh 3 million cash reward to the Harambee Stsrs after their 3-0 win against Ethiopia in the Afcon qualifier match at Kasarani,” Sonko tweeted a short video of him and the players in the dressing room.
The visibly happy players chanted his praises.

Stars scored through Michael Olunga, Eric Johanna and Victor Wanyama.
Meanwhile, the players will have to wait till they confirm qualification for the continental showpiece in Cameroon before they can get the Ksh 50 million promise from DP William Ruto.
