Kenya will be keen to retain the overall team title at the 17th edition of the East Africa Secondary School Games set to get underway this Sunday in Musanze, Rwanda.
Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Association (KSSSA) secretary general, David Ngugi, said besides targeting the overall title, they will be out to defend the disciplines they won in Uganda last year and try to challenge for more.
Kenya successfully defended rugby 7s through debutants Muhuri Muchiri, rugby 15s bagged by Laiser Hill Academy, hockey girls title retained by Sinyolo and boys hockey won by debutants Kisumu Day.
Kenya also reigned supreme in swimmin g and reclaimed the girls’ volleyball title through Kwanthanze Secondary School. “It goes without saying that we will be out to defend the overall title at the event that will be hosted in Rwanda. We are aware all other countries will be out to dislodge us but we are focused and ready for the championship,” said Ngugi, who serves in the same capacity at the Federation of East Africa Secondary School Sports Association.
He added: “We are planning to send our officials in advance so that they can put logistics in place ahead of the team arrival. But generally, all is well and we can only hope for the best.”
Ngugi at the same time confirmed that all the competing schools were expected to assemble at St. Martin’s Secondary School in Busia County yesterday ahead of the week-long event.”
The teams will have bonding session today before departing to Uganda. They are expected to have a sleep-over at the Mbarara High school before they depart for the host nation on Friday. The official said there will be a technical meeting on Saturday before opening ceremony on Sunday. The event will end on August 19 and Team Kenya will disperse on August 21.
