Let Government Invest More in Sports and Arts

Talent is a great gift from God. It is everything. God gave everyone their own talents. This is the key that unlocks your life achievements. If not recognized, the talent ends up useless. From there, life starts to be full of difficulties and challenges.

Government agencies and ministries like that of Education, ICT, and Sports, Culture and Arts should work together to establish stadiums, halls, and theatres for the young people to sharpen their skills in almost every sub-county across the country.

There is also a need for academies for children, youths and adults to be set up. This will enable them to get training from experts in their respective fields.

There are many Kenyan players, artists, and athletes who have shone within the country and beyond. Victor Wanyama, Michael Olunga, Divoc Origi, Jesse Were, Fatuma Zarika, Conjestina Achieng, Lupita Nyong’o, Eric Omondi, Eliud Kipchoge, and Bridgid Kosgey, to name but just a few. The list is long. And we have seen how they are earning huge amounts of money from their talents.

The reason for suggesting this is that the government will benefit from foreign exchange and more so revenue. These athletes, players, and artists will in return invest in their own countries, which is, Kenya. This will create job opportunities for many people.

The country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will increase as the economy would have been improved. For this reason, the poverty level will go down and living standards improved.

The athletes, artists, footballers, etc. will put Kenya on the world’s map hence creating more opportunities for the youth and also motivating them.

With, more investment in sports and arts, Kenya will be a powerhouse of talents like Senegal, Nigeria, and other African countries that boast of players plying their trade in top European Football leagues.

Talent can boost someone’s career, and also lead to one getting a job like landing an ambassadorial deal for a product/company, invites for motivational talks, coaching, and so on.

Basically, talents pay. How can the government ensure people with talents can earn from them? It has to recruit more scouts across the country with a mandate of spotting young talents, and then ep them to be determined, dedicated, and committed through hard work.

The scouts have to do follow-ups regularly and link them up with clubs, teams, bands or respective places where the talents will be nurtured.
