Queens’ ‘relay witness’, the Commonwealth torch, finally landed in Kenya ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmigham, Great Britain.
Today, Cabinet Secretary for Sports Amina Mohammed launched the Queens relay at the Nairobi Arboretum in the hope that many Kenyan teams will advance to the Quadruple Games.
CS Amina noted the important role the Baton plays in complementing the country’s aspirations, renewed hope and resilience.
“The Baton Relay carries with it an ideal and current theme of sustainability, youth and inclusion,” Amina said.
Also present was the President of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK), Paul Tergat, who led a high-level delegation of athletes and federation officials to the event, urging all sports personalities to reflect deeply on the values outlined.
Kenya is the eighth destination among the 72 Commonwealth nations to receive the baton before it finally reaches Birmingham.
The baton will be brought to Ngong Hills, Kajiado County, on Wednesday.
