The Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Association (KSSSA) on  Friday morning landed a major boost when main sponsors Brookside Dairies announced a renewed partnership that will stretch for another four years.

 This year’s national term One school games will be held next week at the Mangu High School and Thika Municipal stadium.

 While speaking during the briefing that was also attended by The Ministry of Education and KSSSA officials, Wasonga reiterated his company’s commitment towards supporting the nurturing of upcoming talents especially at school level which is famed for producing top standard talents across all sporting disciplines.

 “Today we are pleased to announce that Brookside will remain committed towards supporting the development of talent at the grassroots. We believe that sports is just like any other career that needs to be given all the needed support to flourish.” He said.

Wasonga further said they are in talks to expand the sports scholarship program to cover hockey, basketball and rugby in the near future. This will be in addition to the pilot football scholarship programs that have seen Kenyan Premier League club Thika United FC benefit from the scholarship program.

Wasonga continued to add that his company will refurbish facilities at the host schools to help in uplifting the standards of the games.

“We will continue to support the organizers in setting up proper structures to ensure the games are played in top level facilities. And just to mention, these facilities will continue to undergo frequent follow up and monitoring to ensure they are maintained.” He added.
