Chapa Dimba na Safaricom national champions Manyatta United on Monday 24th returned to the city of Kisumu to a silent welcome much to the dismay of the playing unit who- just hours ago, were celebrated all over the country for their national dominance in the U20 football tournament.
Manyatta won the 2019 Chapa Dimba boys’ title after seeing off a strong opposition from Al Ahly of Rift Valley by two goals to one.
Coached by Isaiah Opiyo, and managed by Anthony Oballa, Manyatta arrived in Kisumu at 10 am and headed straight to the governor’s office but failed to secure audience by the county’s number one. They then headed straight to their home- Manyatta Youth resource Center where area Member of County Assembly Mr Joachim Oketch was ready to welcome them.
The boys were hosted for a brief luncheon by the MCA at his offices after which they each left for their homes.
