Governor Wavinya Attends The Swearing In Of CEC For Gender, Sports, Youth And Social Welfare

Newly-appointed County Executive Member Gender, Sports, Youth and Social Welfare John Mwangangi Kalonzo finds a full in-tray in the docket following the resignation of his predecessor two months ago.

Mr Kilonzo who was sworn in on Monday at Mavoko Sub-county offices has his work cut out in the implementation of the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) Sh600 million National Football Technical Center in Machakos, completion of various stadia across the county as well as overseeing the Governor Wavinya Cup among other projects.

The Department of Youth and Sports is key to the County government’s Social-economic agenda which seeks to make Machakos a sports tourism hub.

Speaking during the swearing-in ceremony presided by Machakos High Court Registrar Mary Otindo Governor Ndeti welcomed Mr Kilonzo to the cabinet and urged other staff members to accord him maximum support.

She advised the new Executive to preoccupy the youth with sporting activities in order to keep them off drugs and other vices.

“I am telling you you have a lot of work. Many of our youth are getting lost in drugs and we need to keep them busy,” said governor Ndeti.

Mr. Kilonzo holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Nairobi and an MBA from the United States International University.

He is a founder member of the Masaku Rugby Club and Masaku Sevens Rugby Tournament.

He is currently the Director of the Kenya Rugby Union.
