FIFA World Cup Trophy Lands in Kenya

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday at State House, Nairobi, received the 18-carat gold FIFA World Cup trophy which is on a two-day tour of Kenya ahead of this year’s World Cup in Qatar.

The trophy was handed to the Head of State by legendary Brazilian footballer Juliano Belleti, a World Cup winning defender, who is accompanying it on the tour.

The airplane wearing the prize, that is thought about the most extreme steeply-valued and standard size in present day sport, landed on the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi two or three minutes after 12pm.

Bureau Secretary for Sports Amina Mohamed drove the specialists officials who envelop her Tourism and Industrialisation inverse numbers Najib Balala and Betty Maina separately in getting the prize at JKIA.

President Kenyatta: The presence of the World Cup Trophy in Kenya for the fourth time is without doubt an inspiration to our football fraternity and our youth. 

Sports CS Amina Mohamed: This is an amazing opportunity and we're grateful to be part of a historic moment in our country.

The Vice President of Coca-Coca East & Central Africa, Debra Mallowah: We are delighted to have the FIFA World Cup Trophy here in Kenya. The trophy will be here for two days, we hope to give Kenyans a memorable experience.
