“This is the first time in the history of our county to have ball games at the grass root level. I greatly appreciate those that worked tirelessly to uplift talents in West Pokot County especially the MCAs who ensured that the bill to develop sports and talent in our county is passed for the benefit of our people. I am very grateful to the players that were absorbed by the football clubs in the country because they proved that we can also have good players that can shine and make our county proud.We need to showcase our talent so that they can be discovered by the big clubs in the country and worldwide’’ The Governor said
