Kisumu to establish sports academy

16 September 2013, 12:16 Oduor Omondi

Kisumu - The Kisumu County government intends to establish a sports academy in a move aimed at identifying and nurturing talents among the youth, governor, Jack Nyanungo Ranguma has divulged.

Governor Ranguma made the remarks while receiving trophies won by Maseno School and Sinyolo Girls' Secondary School during the just concluded Kenya Inter-Counties Sports and Cultural Association (KICOSCA) held in Uganda.

“The County will identify youth talents early and facilitate their participation in competitions that will enable them to be recognised at both national and international levels," he observed.

He lauded the schools for not only participating in the East African regional tournament held in Uganda recently, but also for making an unequivocal statement that they are a force to reckon with.

“You have done us proud by bringing home two gold medals in ajua and netball, five silver medals in folksong, set piece, women basketball, draughts and tennis, and one silver medal as overall runners up from KICOSCA,” he said.

The governor underscored the role of sports in bringing people of diverse backgrounds together irrespective of their political, cultural, social or economic backgrounds.

“Besides transforming people’s social and economic well being, sports is known to promote, uphold and sustain the cultural heritage of our people,” he remarked adding that the activity also helps to shape character and discipline.
