Machakos County governor Dr Alfred Mutua on Wednesday officially launched the 2016 edition of Masaku 7’s rugby tournament.
The tournament is scheduled for July 8th to July 10th at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.
This year’s edition has been sponsored by Nation Media Group and East African Breweries, with the latter presenting a Sh.2 million cheque.
The governor has assured tight security and paved extra roads to reduce traffic congestion on the main roads during the tournament.
“Sporting activities continue to attract tourists from across the globe to Machakos. I wish therefore to encourage the public to come this weekend and sample what Machakos has to offer. We have put in place tight security and paved extra roads to reduce traffic congestion on the main roads during the tournament,” he said.
