Kisumu Governor Prof. Anyang Nyong'o has confirmed that his government will revive the Kisumu Hot Stars club to take the place of Palos FC in the National Super League.
Palos FC wrote to the Football Kenya Federation confirming their withdrawal from the country's second-tier league late last month and now Prof Nyong'o has come out to declare that he will support the revival of Hot Stars.
- Kisumu is a place buzzing with the love of football and as such we are committed to seeing that we make sure that we continue to support football. We are going to ensure that there is no void left after Palos withdrew, the Governor said in a press conference earlier.
FKF president Nick Mwendwa lauded the governor's effort of trying to make sure that football continues to be alive in his county.
- After Palos wrote to us that they were withdrawing, we were concerned but after consultations with Prof Nyong'o we are happy that he is going to help Kisumu Hot stars feel the void left by Palos in the NSL, Mwendwa said in the same event.
