Dans Omosa from Masimba in Nyaribari Masaba who is based in the United States has embarked on a talent search program as a way of identifying and supporting talents.
“Talent pays well than profession. Am not discouraging professionals. Parents and teachers should help young people identify and nature their talents from a tender age. As a stakeholder, my role is to nature by giving support where due. That is what I have started,” Omosa told the Daily Clock on Tuesday.
“Like now we have got clubs from abroad who are in need of young talents. Because I understand how talent pays, I will make sure that youths have got enough space to discover their talents. Going forward we will collaborate with these clubs so that we give them our youths especially footballers,” He said.
Omosa who has focused on football has already donated Uniforms and other sporting kits to a number of teams.
“Keeping youths busy reduces crime in the society. We should all of us emulate and find ways of keeping our children busy during holidays and I believe sports do good,”
Nyaribari Masa tournament ended last week where Ichuni football club trounced Gesusu fc 1-0 to win a cup.
