Mombasa governor Hon. Hassan Joho has surprisingly hosted Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama ahead of the 2017-18 English Premier League kick-off.

The Harambee Stars captain was accompanied by his elder brother Mc Donald Mariga and his mother to the feast as confirmed by the governor on his official facebook page where he also wished the players good luck in their career.

“I had the honour of hosting Kenya football internationals Victor Wanyama who plays for Tottenham Hotspurs and his brother McDonald Mariga who plays for U.S. Latina Calcio. Together with their mother we enjoyed a meal together as we discussed a wide range of issues including the potential and growth of youth football in Mombasa County.

“These two represent story of humble beginnings, persistence, discipline and hard work. This is an inspiration particularly to the youth to strive for greater things. May the Almighty continue to bless their path and may their gift continue to be a story of inspiration.”

Here are the photos;


Wanyama has been on holiday after guiding Tottenham Hotspur to a second finish behind Chelsea in the 2016-17 season.

They will be up against Newcastle United on August 13 when the league starts.
