A man from Rongena-Manaret Ward in Sotik Sub County has initiated a football league geared towards fostering peaceful coexistence between Bomet and Nyamira Counties.

Geoffrey Ngetich came up with a league known as Silatee Cup which draws football teams from Tembwo, Manaret and Rongena locations.

Ngetich said the objective of the competition is to bring about peace between the said counties which have for a long time been marred with conflict resulting from cattle rustling.

He said the league was also meant to nurture talents among the youths who would otherwise remain undiscovered

” During holidays, most of our youths remain idle and engage in wayward behaviors and that is why we want to engage them in football to avoid the same,” he said.

“So far, we have three teams going into their finals on Thursday and we urge all members of the public to turn up in large numbers to motivate the competing teams.”

Ngetich further urged the County Government of Bomet to renovate fields and form football clubs in order to foster sporting talents in the County.
