SportPesa Chief Executive Officer Ronald Karauri caused a storm on Sunday after he appeared on the Kariobangi Sharks Vs Everton match donning a Gor Mahia Jersey.
Critics say Karauri should have at least paid Sharks some hommage by donning their jersey since they were the ones playing against Everton.
Some stated that since SportPesa is the official sponsor of the event , the CEO Kararauri should have at least donned the Sharks jersey or worse a SportPesa Pollo Shirt.
“Bwana CEO, we do Appreciate the Good Work you’ve been doing for This Country on Matters sports Development but Jana ulituangusha kidogo. Yes Gor Sirkal is the Biggest Club in Kenya, They do Help Market Sportpesa alot but as the CEO of Sportpesa ulidunisha Sharks Kiasi. That was their Occasion and ingekaa fiti for the Players, Fans and Country ukivaa Something kuwarepresent ,and If ingekuwa ngumu uvae Sportpesa Branded Polo Shirt,” wrote Governor Woodboy Mkenya on KPL Chat.
Some netizens however came to the defense of Karauri saying that the the Sharks jersy is not branded SportPesa hence his decision to wear the Gor Mahia jersey which is branded SportPesa.
“Does SportPesa sponsor Sharks. he is the CEO of sporpesa not sharks?” stated one netizen.
“Understand that Sharks are not sponsored by Sportpesa,” said Lynn Acheing Ogalo.
