Kakamega County Deputy Governor Ayub Savula has announced the Kakamega County Governor’s Cup will kick off in November on a date to be announced later.
Savula said this during the Western Region Sports Mentorship program held at Mumias Sports Complex grounds on Sunday and emphasized that through soccer and other sports, the youth will be able to showcase their talents for identification, nurturing, and exposure.
‘’When you compete at the Premier League level or represent the country in international competition, beyond developing yourself financially, you also raise the flag of Kakamega County high and you become the county ambassador, hence attracting investors and creating job opportunities for the local residents and other people, especially those in the entrepreneurship sector,” Savula said.
The mentorship program brought together seven teams that participated in matches and were awarded accordingly in a partnership with Nyota Media Group in a deal worth Sh893,600.
“Establishment of a county fund and supported professionalism of local sporting leagues across the major sporting disciplines and the introduction of professional coaches in schools will propel the growth of talent among the youth. We are ready to see it happen,” Savula tweeted.
