Transport Chief Administrative Secretary Wavinya Ndeti has called on leaders to support talents at the grassroots as a way of engaging youths in meaningful activities.
Speaking in Yatta of Machakos County during the launch of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Ikombe Ward, Wavinya said youths had so many talents that have not been exploited and it is time to make use of them.
She said it is crucial for leaders to support talent without politics and to work in a structured manner to nurture the youth’s talent.
Wavinya specifically hailed female players for their hard work and dedication in the field. She encouraged them to maintain their discipline by avoiding early pregnancies and focusing on going to national levels.
The CAS also donated uniforms to teams during the FKF Ikombe Ward Launch at Kimuuni Primary School in Yatta, as a way of ensuring they keep on playing and keeping themselves busy to avoid social vices.
The CAS congratulated five of the female players from FKF who have been selected to play in SAKAFA East Africa and at Regional level.
Wavinya was flanked by County Attorney General James Kathili, area MCA Jacqueline Nziva and Machakos County FKF officials.
