Sports can unite us, let’s fully take advantage of it

By Kanyi Gioko | January 5th 2016

Games should unite us all as a country. They help our school children break boundaries and rally together behind a common goal thus helping them learn team building skills and nationalism.

This is why I urge policy makers to consider encouraging more inter-region or inter-county sports as means of enhancing cohesion.

We should use all forms of sports to keep this country united.

As patriotic Kenyans, we have a duty to keep this country together at all costs, where our neighbour’s pain or loss should be felt by all of us. Besides there is no way we shall reach Canaan after staying in the wilderness for 52 years in this era of technology, when the Israelites took only 40 years using celestial bodies as their technology if we don’t change the way we do things.

Everything always looks fine and funny until a something drastic happens in our midst. We then begin asking questions when its too late.

Half a decade is just too long a wait, lets embrace change and complete our dream of a one united and strong nation. Kenya is my mother I will never let it down.

Change for a better country. God bless Kenya.
