The Bungoma County government has been urged to construct more stadiums in order to facilitate nurturing of talent among the youths. Speaking at Matulo primary school grounds during the Steve Biko Webuye West tournament final, Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa said Bungoma County has the best talent pool in both athletics and football, and in order to nurture them, good stadiums must be set up.

He lauded the County administration and Governor Wycliffe Wangamati for starting renovation works at the Kanduyi stadium and urged him to do the same for the Kimilili amutala stadium and pan paper in Webuye. He also lauded Steve Biko for promoting talent among the youths in Webuye West, “I want to congratulate my brother Biko for this innovative course that has not only kept youths busy but has also provided a platform for them to showcase their talents in different fields.”

On his part, UNCTAD secretary general and former minister Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi urged those who’ve attained 18 years of age to get ID cards so that they’ll be able to vote come the 2022 general elections. He said he is focused on the coming general elections and hopes he’ll scoop Kenya’s presidency, noting that youths will form a core of his agenda.

He said the Luhya community should work together, especially leaders, despite their political affiliations. “We can’t be respected if we are divided and nobody will ever take us seriously,” he stated. Mr. Steve Biko who is a politician from Webuye West, said the time for misusing young people is long gone and elected leaders should be put on the spotlight in order to deliver their mandate. He called appealed to Webuye West MP Dan Wanyama to set up a stadium for the youths in the constituency, saying it will be beneficial to them.
