Secondary school Principals have been warned against fielding non students during the ongoing Term Two Ball Championship.


Nyanza Regional Director of Education Lawrence Karuntimi said the Ministry of Education is against the practice because it denies the upcoming talented students the opportunity to nurture their talents for their personal growth and development.

“Information reaching our offices indicate that some dishonest teachers are fielding non-secondary school players and this violate our rules governing the sporting activities in the Ministry,” he said.

In a letter directed to all Sub County Directors and Principals in the region, Kiruntimi alerted them to be aware of those notorious games teachers and team captains who break the law and take action on them.

Migori County started their Championship on June 13 at Mabera Girls’ and Kubweye Mixed Secondary. Kenya Secondary Schools Sports Association (KSSSA) Migori Secretary George Kichana said schools have pooled for the games.

In football for girls pool A consists of Kiogo from Kuria East, Sori of Nyatike West and Kerwa from Suna West Sub-county.

Pool B will feature St Joseph’s of Ntimaru Sub-county, Tatamganya Boys from Kuria West and Iraha of Mabera Sub-county.

Teams are preparing well ahead of the county championships this month.

Pool C for has Koderopara, Osiri and Bishop Okumu schools from Rongo, Nyatike West and Uriri sub-counties respectively.

According to Nyamira KSSSA Secretary Hesborn Okerio, Kiendege Secondary School will host the championships while Chianda School will be the venue for Siaya schools.

Gerald Onyango, KSSSA Secretary for Homa Bay confirmed that county championships will begin on June 18.

Kisii will hold their competitions from June 21 at Nduru Boys and Nduru Girls in Gucha South Sub-county.

This is according to Kisii KSSSA Secretary Geoffrey Nyantika who said that the venue was shifted from Nyachogochogo Secondary School in Nyamache Sub-county because of poor conditions caused by the ongoing rain.

“The school is located in a swampy place and our logistics team found it unsuitable to host the county championship there,” he said.
