Kenyatta University emerged top in Sports ranking after a report ranking Kenyan university based on their sports activities was released on Wednesday. Based on findings of a research conducted by survey company CPS Research International between April and July this year the company was able to rank top Universities.
According to CPS, they settled on sports due to the catalytic role that it plays in physical and mental development of students thus enhancing the school’s academic performance as well as the critical role that sports play in shaping the character of students.
Another factor considered is the fact that university students can curve a great career out of sports if universities and other key stakeholders are challenged through such a study to support sporting activities in the universities and other institutions of higher education.
This study targeted 70 universities, but 55 were purposively sampled and forms part of the report. The constituent university colleges were not surveyed.
The survey identified sports related factors that included level of investment in sporting facilities, annual budgetary allocation to sports recurrent expenditure and number of sporting activities offered in each university.
