President Kenyatta wants golf introduced in Kenya's public schools

The president wants the sport integrated as part of the games played as extra-curricular activities

The President said he wants the sport integrated as part of the competitive games played as extra-curricular activities.

He spoke on Tuesday while flagging off the Junior Golf Foundation team at State House ahead of the All Africa Junior Golf Challenge.

Mr. Kenyatta congratulated the team and wished them success ahead of the tournament set to run from March 3-10.

"As you go abroad with my blessings and my best wishes, express yourselves.  Let your talent shine,” the President told the Junior Golf Foundation team.

He also assured skaters, who were also present at the flag presentation ceremony, that they would be provided with space for their use at the Moi International Sports Complex, Kasarani.

The skaters currently practice their skills at the Aga Khan Walk in Nairobi.

Public schools currently have a number of competitive games as part of their co-curricular activities with the exclusion of golf. This could be attributed to infrastructural gaps that are not supportive to such sport.
