The Association is set to pass a proclamation of Commencement of Patronage Transfer. Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi, who is the Chief Scout leading the occasion will equally launch Kenya’s historic hosting of the 2023 World Moot Camp in April 2023, which will see over 170 member countries attend.
The meeting drew together 47 delegates from each county, represented by 6 officials including a member from the Ministry of Education who witnessed the presentation of Awards of Excellence and participated in Elections for the Kenya Scouts Association Chief Commissioner.
"Now that there has been a change of guard, our patron is none other than President Ruto and we are very privileged and honoured to have a very fatherly patron," Prof. Kaimenyi revealed.
"I have had the opportunity of working with him very closely. I know him as a man who is very concerned about the welfare and the success of our youth," he added.
Deputy Chief Commissioner, Alice Kinungi, lobbied President Ruto and relevant stakeholders to support the aforementioned moot camp slated for April 2023.
"We will be hosting around 3,000 international guests and our own scouts so we are expecting around 5,000 scouts at the event," she stated.
Scouting in Kenya started in 1910 in Nairobi, with the formation of the first Nairobi troop at St John’s church consisting mostly of Asians and Europeans.
The first African troop was formed at Alliance Boys high school under the name “First Kikuyu Troop” in 1927.
Kenya Scouts Association (KSA) is established by an Act of Parliament Cap 219 of the Laws of Kenya and is a registered member of the World Organization of the Scouting Movement.
