Six students attached to Makongeni Sports Association have been offered scholarships to study at St. Peters Boys Mumias by newly appointed Saints principal Cosmas Nabongolo.
Nabongolo moved to Mumias from St. Anthony's Boys High School Kitale during the recent reshuffle. Under his guidance, the Solidarity Boys became the first Kenyan school to lift the East African School games football title in 2002, the achievement was matched by Barding Secondary School in 2016.
He has began the process of transforming St. Peters into a sporting giant by offering six talented footballers from Makongeni full scholarships. Kakamega High School has dominated football in the Western region for years and many have predicted that the Saints will soon give Kenya's most successful school a run for their money.
- Today we bid goodbye to some of our U 15 players who were lucky to get football scholarships to pursue their secondary education at St.Peters Mumias Boys High school. The boys travelling to Mumias are Neville Orao, Clinton Ochieng, Austin Omondi, Emmanuel Baraka, Cygan Otieno and Stephene Abash. Neville Orao is joining Form 2 while the rest are joining Form 1 after sitting for their KCPE exams last year, read a statement from Makongeni Sports Association.
