On Sports and Culture
My government is in the process of refurbishing Kinoru and Maua stadiums. I wish to call upon all stakeholders to be patient until the repairs are done. In September we had the Meru county marathon whose theme was to save the girl child. The marathon will be on yearly basis to promote the youth though sports in our county. By the time we hold this year’s marathon, both stadiums will be of international standards.
Meru County is also scheduled to host the base ball African Championships games in September this year (2014). My government has set aside funds to start construction of a baseball complex, which will comprise the only sports university complex in Africa. This is in pursuit to ensuring Meru county becomes a sports tourism destination not only in the country but also in the African continent. Meru county will be the home of base ball in Africa.
