Youth urged to adopt sports

08 April 2013, 16:06 James Kabotia

In a bid to help talented youths use sports to generate income, Laikipia East MP Anthony Mutahi has donated training equipment to karate and boxing clubs.

Speaking at Nanyuki Social Hall where he delivered equipment worth KES 40 000 over the weekend, Mutahi observed that many talented youths in the constituency indulge in drug abuse.

“The youths can earn a living through sports and I will work hard to ensure that they get the best facilities,” said Mutahi.

Mutahi who was accompanied by County interim Football Kenya Chairperson Abdul Kakaa Amin noted that the hall had no electricity to enable the youths conduct their sports.

He promised to step up security and install electricity in the hall.

A former boxer who is now a local coach Abdirahaman Ramadhan said lack of promoters and goodwill from political leaders has led to the dwindling of sports in Laikipia County.

Ramadhan participated in several commonwealth boxing competitions in the late 1980’s and 90’s where he brought home gold, silver and bronze medals.

He lamented that there were a lot of local talents that needed to be tapped but due to lack of promoters and goodwill from various quarters, they go unutilized.
