Uhuru Calls for Kenya’s Serious Investment in sports and Performing Arts

President Uhuru Kenyatta today at State House, Nairobi challenged the Sports, Arts and Social Development Fund Oversight Board, to utilize resources at its disposal to restore the country’s sporting glory, promote the arts, and preserve Kenya’s rich national heritage.

Speaking after being briefed on the progress made by the board in achieving its broad mandate, President Kenyatta said sports and the arts have the potential of being a major source of jobs for Kenya’s youth if well-resourced and managed.

The President also asked the board to ensure that the Studio Mashinani Initiative, which is growing very fast as a platform for talent development and source of livelihood for thousands of young Kenyans, is adequately resourced and expanded to cover the entire country.
