MP urges youth to desist from radicalisation

05 December 2014, 12:48 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - A Member of Parliament from the terror prone Mvita Constituency, Abdulswamad Sharrif Nassir has asked Mombasa youth to focus on sports and avoid indulging themselves in criminal activities.

Nassir told the youth to focus on development activities that could brighten their lives in future.

Mvita Constituency, which was most hit by radicalization of youth from Masjid Musa and Majengo, was speaking after unveiling a Mvita super cup league at the Mombasa stadium where at least 20 football clubs from the constituency will compete for a trophy among other grand prizes.

He said the league is meant to bring together the youth and keep them busy during the December Holiday.

The league, sponsored by Mvita Constituency youth fund is set to bring both National division one clubs and home grown clubs within Mvita constituency in a tough battle with the winner going home with a trophy and KES 100 000 cash prize.

The second best will pocket KES 50 000 and trophy while the third goes home with KES 25 000. All clubs participating in the tournament will win a full jersey kit.

In what is seen like a move to bring together youth from within Majengo and Mombasa highland, the league will also give the youth an opportunity to nurture their talents where three of the best players will be referred to professional football clubs both locally and internationally.

National Division one clubs West Ham United and Sparki youth are set to battle in the tournament that ends by January 3, 2015.

“This is a move to nurture talents of our youth living in Mombasa. We want boys to stop involving themselves in criminal activities, and nurture their talents through sports,” Nassir told the press at the Mombasa County Stadium.

Football Kenya Federation South coast vice chair, Ismael Mohammed Ogola said referees to officiate the league have already been identified and will exercise professionalism during the tournament.

Ogola confirmed that a Christmas cup which was scheduled to kick off this month was postponed until January to give the tournament support.

“We have postponed all matches which were scheduled for this month so that we can give our clubs some good time to participate in this league,” said Ogola.
