West Mugirango MP awards regional sports qualifiers

West Mugirango MP Steven Mogaka has awarded schools in his constituency that qualified to participate in various ball game competitions at the regional level.

The legislator gave out game kits and balls for football, netball and handball games to school teams that qualified to participate in the regional ball game competitions at Maranda High School in Siaya County starting tomorrow.

“I want to congratulate our young, talented students who have made our constituency proud. The reason why I have decided to motivate them to perform even better and qualify for national ball games competitions is because they are equally capable of clinching the national games title,” Mogaka said.

“I will be channelling the National Constituency Development Fund (NCDF) kitty to construct standard ball games playing courts and pitches in strategic and accessible public institutions within the constituency to be used for practise and competitions of various ball games for both students and constituency sports clubs. I want to ensure that we nurture the sports talents of our youths in the constituency because sports is a very lucrative venture that is enabling young people who have taken it seriously to make a decent livelihood from its earnings,” Mogaka assured.

He pointed out that the youths’ potential is dynamic and apart from pursuing academic-oriented careers only, sports, music and art are some of the emerging professions that youths can embrace and pursue so long as they have the passion and make a living out of them to comfortably sustain their families and those of their dependents.

Nyamira County Director of Education (CDE), Zachary Mutuiri, congratulated the teams for their exemplary performance and challenged them to put their best foot forward in the regional competitions because they have what it takes to qualify for national competitions.

School teams that qualified to participate in the regional ball games competitions in Maranda High School, Siaya County, tomorrow are the Gekomoni football team, Rirumi netball team and Ekerenyo Girls handball team.
