The two discussed various matters concerning football and Raila Odinga took to social media to share the great news.
“Great meeting the Kenyan Legend Victor Wanyama of Tottenham Hotspurs. He stopped by Capitol Hill and promised to carry Kenya to the next World Cup. I congratulated him on mentoring young Kenyans and encouraging them to follow his footsteps and lift the standards.”
Wanyama, who is known for his flashy lifestyle, gifted the former PM a signed Tottenham jersey before they posed for a number of photos together. The jersey costs $55.00 equivalent to Sh5,500.
But since it is autographed, the tshirt is now priceless. Baba should frame it.

Wanyama owns a fleet of expensive cars among them a Volkswagen Crafter, Mercedes Benz, Sports cars, American Cadillac Escalade just to mention but a few.
“Mama Ida and I are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Hon. Ben Oluoch Okello, the Senator for the County of Migori. Senator Okello’s death has robbed Migori County and the country of a self-made, humble leader with a promising career in politics.
It has also robbed the community of a broadcaster who stood out in the articulation of valuable issues like sports, culture, and leadership.
Nothing we do or say now can replace the gentle heart and humble determination that Ben displayed in public life. It is our prayer that his spirit may live on among the people he served in different capacities.
We join Ben’s family, the Senate and the people of Migori in this moment of prayer and mourning.”
