The much anticipated Ksh 1b FIFA world cup trophy has finally landed at   the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) from Ethiopia.

The most recognised sports symbol in the world will be paraded for public viewing tomorrow at the KICC before it leaves for Mozambique.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will today receive the World Cup trophy at State House in Nairobi.

It will be the third time the 36 centimetre-tall silverware is making a landing in Nairobi following similar stops in 2010 and 2013, ahead of the World Cup tournaments in South Africa and Brazil, respectively.

Valued at an estimated Sh1 billion, the glittering trophy is on an international tour to promote this year’s tournament, which begins in June in Russia, by which time it would have been in 51 countries and 91 cities.
