The two teams were accompanied by the Kanduyi sub-county Scout commissioner, Julias Lelei, who expressed confidence in both teams.

“Scouting presents an opportunity for the competitors to learn skills such as construction, first aid administration, and home-based skills. We should also be at the forefront in environmental conversation because it is our mandate to do that,” said Mr. Lelei.

“We are here because we are the best, and we should prove that in terms of performance and discipline,” he said.

The commissioner also maintained that scouting is key in shaping the current generation by instilling relevant skills in the youth.

The competition is set to end on Tuesday, the 20th, and the winners will represent Kenya in the upcoming East Africa regional competition that will be held in Tanzania.

Namachanja high school’s scout trainer Moses Ouma noted that the school has a history of outstanding performance in scouting, and the team is capable of tackling any task ahead of them.

“Scouting has been part of us for a long time, and the team has been to the nationals and previously represented Kenya in East Africa,” said  Ouma.

The students also expressed their confidence, maintaining that they would win and take the trophy.

“We are confident that we have all the points, and we will defend it,” Dion Mbonne, one of the students, said.

The competition is set to end on Tuesday, the 20th, and the winners will represent Kenya in the upcoming East Africa regional competition that will be held in Tanzania.
