  • Kenyan footballer Feiswal Mohammed Bamkuu, from Lamu, stunned the media in France after responding to their questions in Swahili.

    Bamkuu had just joined the French third-tier side, La Berrichonne de Châteauroux and the club held a press briefing where he faced the media. 

    Since he is not fluent in French, Bamzuu answered their questions in Swahili and Kenyans lauded him for his choice of language. 

    This is the first time a player from Lamu joined the French third-tier side.

    Bamkuu told the media that he was grateful for the chance and believes he will be able to be successful in his new journey. 

    “My promise to the club is that I will dedicate myself to them and also I will fly the Kenyan flag high.

    “I am ready for the challenge. Thank you La Berrichonne de Châteauroux for the great reception. Feeling at home already," he stated.

    The protege was grateful to Lamu gubernatorial aspirant Umra Omar, who contributed greatly to his relocation to France. 

    Umra through a social media post congratulated Feisal as she wished the midfielder success in his new career.
