First lady Margaret Kenyatta has pledged to support the local organizing committee as Kenya looks forward to hosting a successful IAAF world under 18 championships in Nairobi in July. The first lady spoke during the launch of the official website that will be used for the championships where she is the patron. With a number of nations opting out of this year’s championship, Mrs Kenyatta is hopeful that Kenya will host a fruitful and world class championship. Sports cabinet secretary Hassan Wario revealed that the Government had pumped in 5 billion shillings for the five day event. The championship will be in its final edition and the local organizing committee is confident that refurbishment of the stadium and training facilities will be complete by the end of May.
