Sauti Sol's Savara to host soccer tournament

Sauti Sol’s band member Mudigi Savara has announced that he will be holding a two day Soccer tournament at the Camp Toyoyo between June 17th and 18th.

The tournament is a 5-a-side set up with a total of 20 teams from Eastlands. Each team will have 5 players and at least two players must be women. All players must be between the age of 18 and 25.

Cash prizes of Ksh.100, 000, Ksh.50, 000 and Ksh.25, 000 will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams respectively.

According to Savara, #SaWA seeks to engage and empower the Eastlands community where Savara was born and raised. Ahead of the tournament, Savara says: “When I was younger, I used to play football as a hobby and it is one of the things that enabled me to form close relationships in the hood, be healthy and fit and also avoid destructive behaviour. Football brings people from all walks of life together.

The tournament is one of the three community events that are being implemented by Savara Mudigi’s community initiative dubbed #SaWA (Savara Women’s Advancement Program).

The culmination of #SaWA will be the pilot phase of a community women’s training and mentorship program that will recruit 50 ladies between 18-25 years from the Nairobi Eastlands area.
