Nakuru County secondary schools Term One games, which were to be held this weekend at Moi High School, Kabarak, will now be held on March 4-7, at the same venue.

The games’ county Secretary-General Duncan Macharia said 11 sub-counties had confirmed participation.

So far, only nine sub-counties, save for Nakuru Town East and Njoro, have completed their zonal championships.

The others are; Nakuru Town West, Naivasha, Subukia, Nakuru North, Naivasha, Molo, Kuresoi North, Kuresoi South, and Rongai.

“Once the two sub-counties that have not completed their games are through with their championships, we’ll now focus on the county games. They asked for more time to complete their games, so we decided to push them to March,” he said. Macharia said Kabarak High School successfully bid to host the games.

Teams will compete in ballgames, athletics, rugby sevens, and 15s.

The draws of the championships will be held next week.
