Mudavadi urges Kenyan sports stakeholders to be more creative
Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has challenged sports stakeholders to develop better revenue generation strategies that will improve the financial performance of the industry.
The sports industry has been one of the worst hit sectors of the economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic and while the Government has been supportive, Mudavadi has urged clubs to push for more marketing and innovation to capture more fans.
Mudavadi has pledged to continue supporting AFC Leopards – where he was once a club patron – whenever they are in need.
Barely a month ago, Mudavadi paid Sh633,000 premium fee for a 20-acre piece of land in Kasarani which he had promised to purchase for them.
He hosted 26 Leopards greats on Thursday at his Musalia Mudavadi Centre led by their legends chairman Josephat Murila.
They had visited him in order to deliberate on a few issues that are of concern including strengthening their financial base to support the club and players welfare.
Leopards chairman Dan Shikanda who was also present extended the club’s appreciation to Mudavadi for his support to the club.
Others present were, former players Aggrey Lukoye, Nahashon Busuru, Mickey “T9” Weche, Mike Amwayi, Reginald Asibwa, George Sunguti, Robert “Coaches” Matano, Patrick Shilasi, Edward Lisamula, Benard Musuku, Peter Lichungu, John “Shoto” Lukoye, Ezekiel Akwana, Zablon Amanaka, Nicholas Muyoti, Maurice Khayota, Maurice Sunguti, Gilbert Olumasai, Kevin Wandera, Patrick Shim, Shabani Omar, Said “Wash” Kamadi, Oscar Kadenge and Charles Okwemba.
