London, May 18, 2018 (AltAfrika)-A sitting legislator in Kenya simply identified as Mheshimiwa was left licking his wounds after losing loads of cash during a recent friendly match between one of Kenya’s local football club, Gor Mahia and English Championship side, Hull City.
The Standard, A Kenyan popular online platform reports that the politician had underrated Gor Mahia boys saying the standard of soccer in England is superior and that even a youth side in League One could wallop the local team 10-0.
The MP had quipped that he witnessed Hull City play EPL side Chelsea in February, and was convinced their standard was superior.
“Chelsea laboured to beat them 4-0 at Stamford Bridge and what does that mean? It means even our team will struggle against them,” he said before placing his bet. Mheshimiwa even went for half time bet, saying he will be rich after 45 minutes.
However, things changed when the local boys managed to draw the game which was played in sweltering heat dealing the legislator a big blow.
He placed multiple bets on the same match certain that he was going to win big.
The MP was left castigating the English side for being shoddy and bogus. “No wonder they were relegated, they have become useless! Even our village team can beat them like rats,” the legislator was heard saying after the match.
The friendly encounter eventually ended in favour English Championship side 4-3 on penalties
