NYAMIRA TO HOST NEWLY NATIONAL GOVERNMENT LAUNCHED TALANTA HELA
August, 23, 2023.
Nyamira County Government will host the newly Presidential launched Talanta Hela for Nyanza South Region.
The event which kicks off tomorrow, Thursday, through Friday will draw participants from Migori, Kisii and the host Nyamira Counties.
Nyamira County Gender, Youth, Sports, Culture and Social Services Executive Committee Member Dr Grace Nyamongo says preparations for the two day event has been finalized.
She said the event was to be hosted by Migori County but due to some unfulfilled logistics which the devolved unit did not meet, Nyamira was accorded that opportunity.
“We are going to have both male and female football games for the two days event where we will pick a team that will represent Nyanza South Region in the national fete in December 2023,” she said.
Dr Nyamongo said two football teams from the Counties for each gender will participate in the event.
“We are going to allow only youths under 19 years to participate in this event,” she said.
The Talanta Hela tournament was inaugurated by President William Ruto two months ago to nurture youths with football prowess.
Those who will qualify will be admitted to the Kenya Academy of Sports where their talents will be enhanced.
