A large field of at least 200 players have confirmed participation at this year’s Kenyatta University Foundation golf tournament to be held at the par 71 Muthaiga Golf Club on Friday and Saturday.

The two-day fundraising event has attracted top amateur players will rub shoulders for different prizes in different categories. Some of the players set to spice up the event include former club captain and chairman Maurice Kanjejo, former international rugby player turned golfer Allan Hicks, veteran David Farrar, former Kenya Golf Union boss Patrick Obath, former Finance Cabinet Secretary Amos Kimunya, top lady golfer Susan Kanyora and former Limuru Country Club chairman Yassin Awale among others.

According to the Kenyatta University Foundation programme coordinator and chair of the organising committee Rose Otieno, the purpose of the golf tournament is to raise funds for scholarship to support of Orphans and Vulnerable Students (OVS) at the university.

Currently our student population is over 70,000 spread across various campuses offering different courses. In concurrence with the KU philosophy to be sensitive and responsive to societal needs, and the belief in the right of every person to knowledge, this cause is noble to us,” said Otieno.

Some of the sponsors for the fundraiser include Unicore projectors, Bamburi Cement, EABL, Pan Africa, Savannah Cement, KASNEB, Kenya Civil Aviation Authority, Safaricom, UBA Bank, Lavington Security, Intercontinental, Panari Hotel, Sarova Hotel, Hilton Hotel, Lavington Security, Eevent Hub and Nation Media Group.

Orphans and Vulnerable Students (OVS) face overwhelming challenges: inability to pay fees and subsistence due to poverty, lack of social support, disability and discrimination, gender-based cultural discrimination and being orphaned from disease or natural calamities,” Otieno said.

She added: “ to that effect, availing scholarships is the most direct way of making a difference in the lives and expanding their opportunities, and thus recognizing and reward outstanding academic achievers who are otherwise disadvantaged. Annually, KU admits more than 3,000 orphans and vulnerable students (OVS) of which the University can only finance 100 scholarships and many deserving applications are turned down. Scholarships for OVS at KU are open to all counties in Kenya, thereby multiplying the overall impact equitably across Kenya at family and community levels.”

Registration for participating in the event is Sh3, 000 and being a spectator is also Sh3, 000
