The Marsabit County Peace Tournament that took place over the weekends at Marsabit Stadium has successfully ended with Laisamis emerging the overall winner. This peace tournament is one among the many avenues the County Government of Marsabit is employing to promote peaceful co-existence among the diverse ethnic communities of Marsabit County.

Addressing the players and spectators, the Marsabit County Governor, H.E Amb. Ukur Yatani, observed that Marsabit County was known for many good things that need to be harnessed positively for the good of the people of the county. He recalled that, back in the day, Marsabit County used to lead in sports and that it was time that the past sporting reputation which used to define this county need to be recouped.

Ambassador Kanacho further observed that his government had already invested enough resources to build the sporting architecture of the county. He said the county government of Marsabit had injected Ksh. 9.4 Million to develop both Loiyangalani and Maikona Stadia and a further Ksh. 1.5 Million for each of the 20 Wards.
