Appearing on JKL Live, Mwendwa disclosed that the new KPL trophy costs a whooping Sh5, 000, 000, something that has left Kenyans talking.
According to Mwendwa the trophy was crafted in Dubai. The 24 karat gold coated trophy stands at 80cm and weighs 11kgs.
Describing the trophy and the idea behind it, Mwendwa said; “We went a long way to craft a trophy that represents the Kenyan heritage… so we crafted the trophy around the Maasai culture and the big five. This is the first time this trophy is being seen by Kenyans and footballer lovers…This is a Maasai holding a football and its gold coated, 24 Karat gold and at the base it has our big five (Lion, Rhino, Leopard, elephant and the Buffalo)”.
Previously, the federation endured a hard time in shipping the trophy that was made in Dubai into the country ever since the onset of the novel coronavirus pandemic which made it hard for successful logistic plans to be executed.
