The Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) will hold its Annual General Meeting this Saturday in Nairobi to review the gains and losses of the past year and plan activities for this year.
Cabinet Secretary for Sports, Culture and Arts, Dr Hassan Wario is among various sports stakeholders and sponsors who are expected to attend the meeting at the Norfolk Hotel.
After the AGM, SJAK, an affiliate of the International Sports Press Association (AIPS), will have a brief session to deliberate on how its members - sports journalists drawn from both local and international media houses - can preserve the value of sports by joining the battle against the ills facing the sports industry, especially doping and corruption.
“As journalists, we realize that if we let these cancers kill our sports, then the sports will die and in the end finish this industry and our cherished art of sports journalism,” said SJAK Chairman Chris Mbaisi.
Part of the agenda at the AGM will be to elect one member to join the nine-member Executive Committee who were elected last year for a four-year term. The event will be hosted in partnership with Coca Cola.
SJAK has in the past year organised trainings for its members and assisted key sports federations in their accreditation processes. The association seeks to enhance the cooperation between its members in defending sport and their professional interests.
