Raila Odinga has challenged the Harambee Stars to put up a good show at the Africa Cup of Nations finals.
“The President (Uhuru Kenyatta) has requested me to stay here until you play first match and if you qualify to finals, he will come.
“We are very impressed that you have had a good training session away in France and this should motivate you to give Kenyans the result they want. I know you are capable of doing Kenyans proud and I will be there to watch you against Algeria.”
Kenya will face Algeria on June 23 before a clash against neighbours Tanzania four days later, and close group duties with a match against Senegal on July 1.
However, the tournament proper will kick off on Friday with hosts Egypt taking on Zimbabwe.
