Mandera youth receive new sports gear

24 July 2014, 08:13

Mandera - Mandera County Governor, Omar Mohamed Maalim has donated sports kit for the youth in the region after he pledged to renovate Moi Stadium.

Football and volleyball teams are set to benefit from the donation.

According to a statement from the Mandera County Deputy Governor’s office, the kits comprised of balls, jerseys, referee gear, first aid kits, whistles, and flags.

“A total of 111 teams across the county will benefit from the project implemented by the Ministry of Education and Social Services of Mandera County Government,” said the statement.

The county is also in the process of rebuilding Mandera Moi Stadium to international standards.

The building works is projected to be finalized in seven months.

Mandera, though always under threat of insecurity due to inter-clan wars and the Al Shabaab factor due to its proximity to Somalia, has defied these odds to improve sports in the county through the initiative.

The county joins the ranks of other counties that have funded sports and sports facilities in their counties including Kiambu and Machakos.

Last weekend, Kiambu County held the inaugural Kiambu Governor’s Champion’s Cup held at Thika Stadium.

Machakos County on the other hand last year embarked on a process to renovate Machakos Stadium (previously known as Kenyatta Stadium) to a national status.

The stadium later hosted some matches of the Council for East and Central Africa Football Association (CECAFA).
