The playgrounds have been cleared, we have already purchased the required instruments and to me, I think we are already prepared for this event and I assure everyone that it is going to be a success,’’ he said.
A similar event hosted in the same university as from 17th to 21st of December in 2016 saw Mount Kenya University (MKU) carry the day in various games including basketball where they smashed Pwani University 25 baskets against 13 baskets.

Last year, the event attracted a large number of universities as participants and this year all the 31 public universities and 27 private universities have been invited.
