K’Ogalo won the title last weekend with two matches to spare after a 1-1 draw against Vihiga United at Machakos Stadium.
On coronation day, Gor Mahia also managed a 1-1 draw against Posta Rangers, but that could not stop them from being crowned as champions for the third successive season.
Deputy President William Ruto is among the politicians to have praised Gor Mahia for the rare achievement.
