In a speech read on his behalf by the Director of Administration Henry Mung’asia during the launch of “KICK OFF’  in Nairobi, the CS said that innovation and operation is mainly driven by the youth and sporting excellence is the domain of the youth.

“We urge the young footballers to keep up the spirit of competitiveness and gain more knowledge in order to eradicate the problems in their day to day sport activities,” said Mucheru

KYEB chairman Samuel Tangus said the board has several publications in the pipeline that it will be launching before the end of the year,
