Deputy Commandant Officer Cadet School Kenya Military Academy (KMA) Lieutenant Colonel Joseph Nzioka, on behalf of the Commandant Major General Fatuma Ahmed, presided over the 3rd edition of the Academy’s sports championships held at the facility’s grounds in Lanet, Nakuru.
The annual Championship aims to bring a competitive professional environment to the Cadets outside the class set-up and promotes esprit de corps among them.
Sports is an important aspect of Cadets’ training as it provides a platform for character development, team building, a sense of belonging, competitive instinct, and a winning mentality.
The one-day event saw cadets and KMA staff compete in various sporting activities ranging from football, netball, volleyball, swimming and cross country to test their physical fitness.
Addressing the various teams during the closing ceremony, on behalf of the Commandant KMA, Lieutenant Colonel Joseph Nzioka congratulated all the participants and encouraged the cadets and staff members to continually improve their fitness levels and talents.
Present at the event were various KMA faculty representatives, cadets and corporate sponsors.
