Garissa Township MP Aden Duale on Sunday opened a Sports Centre in Garissa Town that will benefit the youth from the region.

Duale said the Sansiro Sports Centre which can host both local and international games, will provide the youth from the region with a place where they can nurture their talents.

In a Facebook post, Duale noted that the facility will be a good way of keeping the youth busy, and protecting them against radicalization or engaging in illegal activities.

It can host both local and international sports,” he posted.
