  • Citizen TV news anchor Jeff Koinange was on Wednesday, September 15, surprised with a personalised gift by his interviewee.

    Koinange had hosted Toronto Raptors boss, Masai Ujiri, on his show to discuss his ambitious plan to build Basketball courts across the African Continent.

    Towards the end of the bulletin, Ujiri unveiled a red Nike-branded jersey bearing the brand of the Canadian team and handed it to the news anchor.

    The jersey also bore the name Koinange in white capital letters at the back.

    Ujiri further invited Koinange to Canada during a Raptors game noting that the North American Country had instituted good Covid-19 vaccine practices and was gearing up for fan-packed game.

    "When are you coming that way? (in Canada). You have to come and wear this. I am going to sign you. You are not going to be doing this job anymore, you are coming to play for the raptors," stated Ujiri while presenting the gift.

    A smitten Koinange was elated with the gift.

    "God bless you brother. Well done, I really appreciate this. I am coming to Toronto. Did you hear that mum, I am going to Toronto," stated an elated Koinange.

    While on the show, Ujiri noted that his organisation had committed to building 100 stadia across Africa, including one in Nairobi.

    Ujiri, who is the vice chairman of the Toronto Raptors, will be carrying out the project through his Giants of Africa organisation.

    "The pandemic period has been tough but we have to be tough and get back to normal life. We want to build 100 basketball courts in Africa as the youth need them to play. It will cost 3 million US dollars."

    "This is charity we are doing with Giants of Africa. The courts will foster sports among the youth and we have seen this happening in Rwanda already," stated Ujiri.
