Former governor Ruto lauds APS Bomet for maiden KPL promotion
Former Bomet governor Isaac Ruto yesterday congratulated APS Bomet for securing promotion to play in the country’s top league, the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Premier League next season.
The South Rift side sealed their fate on Wednesday with a 1-0 win over Mara Sugar that guaranteed them the National Super League title with two matches to go as they went beyond reach.
Ruto praised the Club for putting Bomet County’s name on the country’s football map, saying the county residents were proud of them for demonstrating that the game had taken root in rural areas.
“As a county, we are proud of you and thank you for putting the map of Bomet county on the soccer radar in the region and the country at large. Indeed your hard work propelled you to lift the FKF National Super League title and trophy,” Ruto told People Sport.
In a press statement Ruto who is gunning for Bomet gubernatorial seat through Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party, promised to support the side when they embark on their new challenge in the top flight league competition next season.
