My brother Bosco Omario, you have given us a new challenge. This investment you have done is great and the sports people should take advantage of this. I am behind you. This investment must bring returns. Sports is now business. Avoid the unnecessary bickering and politicking in the sports federations. Government should also come up and offer tax holidays to private sectors investors like Omario.
