Busia Athletics team for this year’s Western Region Primary Schools Championships left for Mumias on Friday morning ready to face participants from three other counties of Bungoma, Kakamega and Vihiga.

First Lady Judy Ojaamong flagged off the team at St. Teresa’s Girls Boarding Primary School where they have been camping for the last two days.

The First Lady fulfilled her promise of 100 pairs of games kits which she procured for Team Busia. Addressing the participants Judy said apart from class work it’s important to nurture talents that abound in the county.

“As you participate you should know we love and value you. I want you to emerge champions and confirm that Busia is good in both academic and extra-curriculum activities,” she said.

Team official Jane Khaira lauded the first lady for the uniforms saying it was the first time Team Busia was kitted for the regional championships.

“We need people like you who support our children, facilities, education, co-curriculum activities, talents and everything that children have. We are going with one heart and we know we shall succeed,” she said

Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong on Thursday boosted the team with Sh50, 000 cash token to help them in their preparations ahead of the championships.

The winners in the track and field events will represent the region at the National championships to be held in Mumias this month.
