Due to the Covid-19 pandemic that has greatly affected our economy, the sporting industry has not been left behind especially with the suspension of sporting activities.
Clubs heavily rely on sponsorships to fund their activities. The sponsors re-coup their money back through the sporting activities.
The suspension has left K’Ogalo with huge debts including salaries for its players. The K’Ogalo committee has organized a Harambee dubbed “GMFC 2 MILLION DOLLAR HARAMBE”.
