Sport expected to be improved in Trans Nzoia

15 March 2013, 16:38 Mwangi Karanja

Sports stakeholders have extolled a new crop of leadership in Trans Nzoia County saying they have the capacity to transform sports sector.

Led by the founder of Kitale Youth Sports Center John Barasa and veteran Walter Wanyonyi, they appreciated the achievement of Cherangany MP elect Wesley Korir terming it a boost to the sector.

“He has the ability to coordinate well with local and foreign sports officials to positively improve the status of sports in the area,” Said Barasa.

They claimed that outgoing leaders had neglected sports as a profession that is providing an alternative source of income to the youth.

Kenyatta stadium, for instance, has always remained in its deplorable condition of no shades, no gate and currently acting as a herding field.

They said that despite the 2012 national school soccer champions St. Anthony Boys Kitale hailing from the region, it was out of their own efforts.

The county needs a reliable platform to nurture talents and grounds to absorb successful talents from St. Anthony Boys High School which nurture the 2010 Midfielder Kenya Premier League Midfielder of the year Kevin Kimani.

They now believe that under the governorship of Patrick Khaemba, the Trans Nzoia senator Henry Ole Ndiema and the new Saboti MP David Wafula, Trans Nzoia will see a transformed sports sector by 2017.

The Cherangany MP elect who won the 2012 Boston Marathon race said that he will participate in the 117th edition of the race on April 15.

Wanyonyi and Barasa were former players of Kitale FC which diminished 11 years ago due to financial flux.
