The annual Sports Personality of the Year Awards (SOYA) received a boost of Ksh 3 Million from the Communications Authority of Kenya CA, for the event set to be held on January 11th in Mombasa.
This is the eighth year CA is supporting the event. Mr Tom Olwero, the Director Frequency Spectrum Management and Rachel Alwala, Assistant Director Consumer and Public Affairs presented the cheque.
Soya awards have traditionally been held in Nairobi and the organisers deemed it fit to broaden the scope by taking it to the coastal town as it marks 15 years of recognising the country’s sportsmen and women.
There will be 15 categories on offer at the awards ceremony including overall sports personality of the year, sportsman of the year, sportswoman, sports team (men and women), federation of the year, coach of the year, community hero/heroine of the year and hall of fame induction.
Others include sportsman living with disability (men and women), most promising (girl/boy), school team (girls/boys), outstanding player (boy/girl).
