President William Ruto has arrived at Nyayo stadium for the match between Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards, famously known as the Mashemeji derby.
Ruto was accompanied by Langa'ata MP Phelix Odiwuor.
The game between arch-rivals Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards is currently going on at the stadium.
The Mashemeji Derby is a high-stakes game which presents the victor with bragging rights.
The first-leg tie played in January at the same venue ended in a barren draw.
Ingwe who have shifted their focus on the Mozzart Bet Cup tournament, have not defeated their opponents in all competitions for the last seven years, a fate that Coach Patrick Aussems is hoping to bring to an end.
Gor are eying a record 20th KPL title and are currently locked in a two horse race title tussle with perennial rivals Tusker FC who are the defending champions.
They are less than seven matches to end the season with the Mashemeji derby result being a game changer in the title race.
This will be the 96th head-to-head tie in the history of Mashemeji Derby since the first time the two sides locked horns on May 5, 1968.
K’Ogalo holds the bragging rights having won 33 of the encounters while Ingwe has secured 28 victories. The rivals have tied in 33 meetings.
