Harambee Stars captain Victor Mugubi Wanyama has bought a bus for two sports clubs in Muthurwa; Country Bus FC and Muthurwa Boxing Club.
Country Bus is where the highly combative defensive midfielder spent his formative years as a budding footballer and it’s from where he draws the tag “Lion of Muthurwa”.
The 40-seater bus was purchased in London through Victor Wanyama Foundation and underwent clearance at Mombasa port on Friday before being delivered to the team in Nairobi.
Speaking to Nation Sport, the Tottenham Hotspur player said he’s happy to help the club that played an instrumental role in his development.
“East or west home is always the best. I can never run away from the fact that I was born and bred in Muthurwa and that Country Bus FC nurtured my talent. I am happy to give back to the team in a small way and hope this will be the beginning of the team’s ascendancy to the top,” he said.
“Muthurwa is also known for producing good boxers and this is courtesy of the boxing club. This bus will also serve them whenever they are traveling for games or whatever functions they have,” he added.
Country Bus is currently ninth in the Nairobi East County League with three points having played two matches.
