NAIROBI, Kenya Apr 25 – Uhuru Kenyatta’s nominee for Secretary of Sports, Culture and Arts is a man who has studied and practiced arts and culture for all his life.
Dr Hassan Wario holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in anthropology from the University of Nairobi’s Institute of African Studies where he graduated in 1995, upon which he joined the National Museums of Kenya.
He pursued his Masters in 1997, after he won the prestigious Chevening Scholarship through the British High Commission and proceeded to the University of East Anglia in Norfolk, England.
Wario proceeded to undertake his PhD in anthropology at the same university, where he graduated in 2013.
He has extensive international experience, having worked for the British Museums for eight years making him bring an impressive network within the heritage and related sectors worldwide.
The father of two, if approved by the National Assembly, will be tasked with overseeing the extensive Jubilee manifesto on youth being implemented.
In its manifesto, Jubilee government promised to establish new sports facilities as well as upgrading the existing ones across the country.
Sports, Culture and Arts are some of the greatest uniting factors in Kenya.
Currently youths are the majority in Kenya. The high rate remains one of the greatest challenges facing the country since many are not employed and sports could be one of the remedy if expanded.
