The first edition of Michezo Mashinani tournament has kick off all over the county according to the county sports officer Mr. Shadrack Maya. The event will kick start at the ward level in all five sub counties and will involve both football and volleyball.

Mr. Shadrack Maya said this is an opportunity for youths to showcase their talent because many of them lack the exhibition platform as majority come from the county rural areas.

“We want to give the talented youths of the most remote areas and clubs an opportunity to enjoy the game. The county government will support the whole event and there will be scouts in all wards who will be identifying best talents of which later will come up with an 18 man team which will represent their respective sub counties in the Governor’s cup scheduled for next month.” Said Maya.

The county sports officer also noted that the money will be distributed equally to all wards.

“Each ward will get ksh.200, 000 for the event without regards of the size or number of teams participating to create fairness and to reach to the local community and that is why we called it Michezo Mashinani. Our main target is to get the best talent in the faraway rural areas, support these talents and later represent us in the inter counties games which will be held in Kwale county at a later date.” said Maya

He added that scouts who will be identifying talents will be from football Kenya federation (FKF) and the county ministry of education, sports and social services which will also supervise the exercise in all five sub counties.

“We will bring scouts from FKF office and other neighbouring counties because we want fairness during selection process.” Said Maya.
