In Summary
  • After we are handed our 16th Kenyan Premier League title in the weekend in Kisumu, of course we will paint the streets of Kisumu green.
  • But after the celebrations, we will have to focus on the challenge ahead- the Africa Champions League and the Cecafa club championships.
  • Honestly speaking, I know we have struggled at the continental level, but I do believe coach Dylan Kerr has the arsenal to take us to the group stage.

Today I go regional.

After we are handed our 16th Kenyan Premier League title in the weekend in Kisumu, of course we will paint the streets of Kisumu green.

But after the celebrations, we will have to focus on the challenge ahead- the Africa Champions League and the Cecafa club championships.

Honestly speaking, I know we have struggled at the continental level, but I do believe coach Dylan Kerr has the arsenal to take us to the group stage.

That will be a massive achievement for us because no other Kenyan club has managed that. If we win the title, I will swim in lake Victoria to Migingo Island and to declare it Kenyan territory in full view of Museveni’s soldiers.

But that aside, I think Kerr needs to set his sights on winning the Cecafa club championships.

The last time we played in Cecafa club championships, we were unlucky to lose in the final, but we had already made a big statement.

That time WE were making a return after a long absence and we did not disappoint. Now we have a stronger team that can go all the way and lift the title.

My request to my friend and senior in sports journalism Mr Nick Musonye is to try and bring the club championships to Kenya and make Kisumu the host city of the final match.
