TP Mazembe owner sponsors Kotoko academy project with US$ 100,000

Published on: 23 October 2012

TP Mazembe owner Moise Katumbi has donated US$ 100,000 to Asante Kotoko for the club's Youth Academy.

The amount will be used to start the construction of the multi-purpose one storey hostel facility.

Katumbi made the promise on the visit of Kotoko's International Relations Consultant, Kwame Baah-Nuakoh, when he travelled to Congo to negotiate on the transfer of two Daniel Nii Adjei and Yaw Frimpong.

"In that regard, Moise Katumbi Chapwe will donate US$ 100,000 to Kotoko to start the building of the Kotoko Academy Hostel," Baah-Nuakoh said.

"What he will get in return for his good gesture would be the naming of a wing of the hostel after him, and also the display of T.P Mazembe’s plaque to honour them as sponsors of the project."

Kotoko have also signed a five-year partnership deal with the DR Congo outfit.

The Ghanaian champions will camp in Lubumbashi for two weeks in January ahead of their 2012 CAF Champions League qualifiers.

    Kotoko should be richer than this club but instead they are naming their buildings after another club. Beggers.

    A billionaire collects gifts from their lovers. It shows how friendly the two clubs are. If you're rich, does that mean u shouldn't receive gifts? Was this a beg? Shame onto U(hearts fans). Let ur Club also get friend to donate to U. Jerous!

    Well spoken,bro but im sorry that's how Ghana has grown to become.Our politicians have polluted n imbibed in us that culture.But hopefully we shall overcome! Its a shame,though.
