Raila Odinga took to Twitter to comment about the Harambee Stars’ performance in their first match and he tweeted,
After a 15-year absence from the tournament you played your hearts out but didn’t get a favorable result. Keep your heads up and keep going, kuteleza sio kuanguka. The whole nation is still rooting for you #HarambeeStars all the best in the rest of your #AFCON2019 fixtures.
