Striker Jentrix Shikangwa has urged the Government to give the Harambee Starlets queens a befitting financial support after winning the first ever Cecafa Senior Womens Challenge
Shikangwa says the team has proved why government should support them unreservedly.
“We have put the country on the map but nothing tangible we have received from the government. I urge them to fully support us because we need to grow in this game so that we can continue flying high the Kenya’s flag at the international scene,” said the 2019 Cecafa top-scorer.
Upon arrival, the team was driven through the city streets aboard a bus whose sideways bore a huge banner with the words: “CECAFA WOMEN’S CHAMPIONS 2019” where they later had a luncheon at Utalii Hotel.
Speaking during the luncheon, FKF boss Mwendwa and said
“This is a very historical moment for our ladies and Kenya at large. Since we assumed the office, Kenyan women football has been in upward trajectory and this tells you that we are heading to a good direction. I will ensure that Kenya bids for AWCON hosting rights so that our team can have a sense of pride playing at home during the continental showpiece.
“I will hold discussions with the ministry to see how they can assist us in ensuring we can have three standard stadiums because to host the tourney we need to have a minimum of three stadiums because only 12 teams will feature,” he underscored.
