"The government has selected the two sides in view of the General Election that is due to take place in August. The country is heavily polarized at the moment and so we thought of bringing in these two teams, who draw most of their fans from opposite sides of the political divide as a way of encouraging peaceful coexistence during this period," said State Department of Sports Principal Secretary Carolyne Kariuki.

"The match will be only for integration purposes and maybe the governor or county commissioner will decide to reward the winner but it is  not a competition." Said Carolyne Kariuki.
