President Uhuru Kenyatta today at State House, Nairobi, handed over the national flag to the Junior Golf Foundation team that will represent the country at the All Africa Junior Golf Challenge in Morocco.
President Kenyatta congratulated the team and wished them success as they prepare to travel to Morocco for the tournament which runs from 3rd to 10th March.
"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.
President Kenyatta urged the Ministries of Sports and Heritage, Education and Interior to finalise the development of a curriculum that will see golf introduced to public schools.
As the President spoke on improving sports in the country, he also assured skaters who attended the flag presentation ceremony at State House that they would be provided with space for their use at the Moi International Sports Complex, Kasarani. The skaters currently practise their skills at the Aga Khan Walk in Nairobi.
Sports and Heritage Cabinet Secretary Rashid Mohammed Achesa, Principal Secretaries Josephat Mukobe and Kirimi Kaberia accompanied the team and officials of the Junior Golf Foundation.
