16 Nyali Teams to Participate in Uwanja Wa Mbuzi Tourney

Coastweek -- Sixteen football teams from Nyali constituency in Mombasa County will participate in the inaugural tournament sponsored by prominent Mombasa businessman Said Abdalla at the Joho Stadium popularly known as Uwanja wa Mbuzi.

The tournament is organized by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Mombasa sub-branch with the aim of occupying the youths in the county and preventing them from engaging in immoral activities.

FKF’s Juma Ali Goshi applauded the sponsors of the tournament who distributed uniforms and balls to the teams that will participate.

He called on the teams that will take part in the tournament to maintain high standards of discipline and sportsmanship.  “This is a rare opportunity and you should make use of it to attract more sponsorship in football in the county,” he said.

Meanwhile Bandari football club head coach Bernard Mwalala will unveil the under-18 football team this week before the opening of the Sportspesa Kenya Premier league against defending champions Gor Mahia.

He said the selection of the team follows the conclusion of the trials last month.

He urged coast region football players to take advantage of organized local tournaments to nurture their talents.

“Let us rally behind leaders who value sports and promote football in the region,” he said.

The coach said he is a product of people who love football in the country.

Mwalala acknowledged that his parents were unable to pay his school fees but the principal of the school allowed him to continue learning.

He pointed out that his former school principal had allowed him to continue with his studies despite the lack of school fees because he believed in sports.

Meanwhile, youths in the country have been urged not to involve themselves in drugs and crime. Prominent Mombasa businessman Said Abdalla Salim urged them to be active in sports.

He said sports can not only occupy them and keep them away from negative activities but can also economically empower them as a career.

“Time has come for youths in the coast region to nurture their sports talent during the December holiday season,” he pointed out.

Salim said there is need for the youths in the region to plan their future through tapping their talent in sports.

He spoke during the inauguration of a tournament he has sponsored to be held at the Joho stadium popularly known as Uwanja wa Mbuzi in Nyali constituency in Mombasa County.
