NOVEMBER 22, 2022: Chemagel Ward MCA, Hon. Dennis Busienei has in the afternoon sitting called on the County Government through the department of Sports to play an active role in sporting tournaments and talent development.
Pointing out the Annual Cross-country Championship that was recently organised by the Athletics Kenya (AK) in Sotik, the Member raised concern over the failure of the County Government to arrange similar events and its inability to publicise the event.
