Uasin Gishu Assembly chair of Sports Committee, Gilbert Lagat, said the legislature will work with the executive to empower youth through programs like sports. His Kapsaos peer, Isaac Samoei had the same sentiments.

Director for Youth, Henry Mukholwe, before awarding teams in several venues, said the county government is working on policies to establish youth sports centres to help nurture talents from across the county.

“The county government is drafting policies that will set up talent centres, at least one in every sub-county,” said Mukholwe.

“The County Government is very keen to identify and nurture talent. Many more programs including football will follow the volleyball tournament in coming years,” Mukholwe closed. His fellow Directors Steve Kemoi and Peter Ruto called on the youth to take advantage of county empowerment programs
