The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) have requested the government to declare June 5 a public holiday as the Harambee Stars will host the Super Eagles in a 2014 World Cup qualifier.

Sam Nyamweya, the FA President wants the government to announce June 5 a public holiday to allow Kenyans to watch their national team in the stadium and TV.


-I kindly request the President and his Deputy to make this great day a public holiday so that Kenyans can get time to throng into Kasarani Stadium and see for themselves our boys taking on the African champions, because it’s another chance for Kenya to qualify for the World Cup, said Nyamweya

Kenya forced Nigeria to a 1-1 draw in the first leg played in Calabar, and the Stars are confident of claiming all three points at stake on June 5.
