Former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu’s son Brian Ndung’u showed off his footballing skills in a soccer challenge on a seven-seater soccer field.
The Football Challenge was broadcast on a newly established online TV channel, One Two TV, and played Ndung’u, executive member of the Eastleigh business community, Asmali Mohamed and the show’s hosts – Sadam and Zuhum.
The four faced off on penalty, free kick, one on one with the goalkeeper and shot against volley.

The free kick consisted of bending the ball from outside the penalty area (18-yard penalty area) past the goalkeeper into a small goal post. The instructions were to score with both legs and the winner was the one with the most points.
At the end of the match, Asmali’s team won with five points while Ndung’u got three points.
Throughout the match, Ndung’u’s friends made fun of his situation when he was arrested two weeks ago for driving under the influence of alcohol.
“We need time to recover, we just got out of jail the other day,” Ndug’u’s teammate said in an attempt to justify his loss.
The 25-year-old man was arrested Monday (15th) by police on Muindi Mbingu Street in Nairobi, brought to justice and pleaded guilty to the offense.
He was released by Nairobi’s senior magistrate, Esther Kimilu, who sentenced him to pay a fine of Ksh 30,000 or face three months in prison.
His father, however, refused to post bail for him, which saw him spend the night in the Nairobi Industrial Zone Prison.
Recounting his night time experience in prison, Ndung’u said he missed the evening meal upon arrival due to long lines.
“They took off all my clothes, even my boxers, and I was given a uniform to put on. It was a shocking experience.
“I slept on the cell floor without a mattress, but I was given a blanket to cover myself until the morning,” the politician’s son said.
