The Aga Khan Council of Kenya is currently hosting a cultural sporting event for the Ismailia community who's spiritual leader is His Highness Aga Khan. He is celebrating his Golden Jubilee-50 years as the community's spiritual leader.
This event is a one-of-its-kind and shows the length and respect to which Aga has and still commands for Kenya. Coming in such trying times, it's a boon to the fledging economy which can do with as much favourable publicity as possible.
Though the cultural value will supercede the competitive nature of the Games, the mere presence and interaction will be of good value to local sports enthusiasts who hope to provide future talent in the different sports disciplines.
The games will feature 14 disciplines including; football, tennis, table tennis, volleyball, badminton, squash, wrestling, golf and chess. The respective venues are spread around Nairobi with Kasarani taking the lion's share, Aga Khan Sports Centre, Oshwal School, Jaffreys Sports Club, Nairobi Simba Union, International School of Kenya and Windsor Golf Club.
