Laikipia County workers who are in their final gear in preparation for the upcoming Kenya Inter Counties Sports and Cultural Association (KICOSCA) have expressed optimism that they will bring the title home again.
Speaking to KNA in Nyahururu Municipal stadium during the preparation, the team captain Peter Kiragu, said that they are doing the final preparations before traveling to Kisumu County for the KICOSCA games set to kick off on 15th January.
“We have been coming here for three months in preparation for the upcoming games. We have been the champions of Kenya previously and we went all the way to Uganda for the East Africa competitions,” said Kiragu.
“As for now, Nairobi County is the defending team, followed by Kisumu and we are at position four. We have been preparing to bring the championship back home and participate in the East Africa Sports and Cultural Association (ERASCA) games which will be taking place in Rwanda and hoping to be at the Africa championship competitions in South Africa,” added Kiragu.
KICOSCA games are held annually in different counties and they are hosted on a rotational basis.
Last year Nairobi County won with Laikipia County finishing at number four. Only the winning team advances to ERASCA.
The winner of the ERASCA advances to Africa championship which will be held in South Africa later this year.
