Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has led Kenyans in congratulating Gor Mahia for winning a record seventeenth Kenya Premier League Title.
Goal sealed the title in scintillating fashion with a 2-0 win against AFC Leopards in the Mashemeji derby on Saturday to send their fans reeling with passion.
Posting on his Twitter handle, Raila congratulated the team and also reserved some praise to AFC Leopards for putting up a spirited fight.

Several Kenyans have congratulated the mighty K’Ogalo for sealing the title with six games to spare and having only lost one match in the entire season.
Boniface Omondi scored a goal and set up another one for Benard Ondieki to seal the all important win despite Gor Mahia missing some key players in the match with coach Dylan Kirr having opted to rest Captain Harun Shakava, Humphrey Mieno and Francis Kahata. Lethal striker Jacques Tuyisenge also missed the match with an injury which will keep him out for the next three weeks.
