Dire Dawa – Dire Dawa Kenema FC aka Dire Dawa City has now a new website (www.direkenema.com) courtesy of Ethiopian-Italian Ricucci Gabriele, who was born in Dire Dawa.

Ricucci, who currently lives and work in San Marino, Italy, was born in Dire Dawa on June 16, 1971. He moved to Italy with his mother when he was just 8-years-old.

Ricucci never forgot his roots and he has been back to Dire Dawa on a number of occasions, where he has previously donated an ambulance to Dil Chora Hospital and soccer balls to some of the youth teams in the city.

He is also planning to lend his support to Harar Brewery and Adama Kenema FC.
