Tanzania will host next year’s edition of the Federation of East Africa Secondary Schools Sports Associations, (FEASSSA)games,  set for August 15-24 in Mwanza.

According to the circular released by the Ministry of Education through Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang, the neighbouring country who missed this year’s edition held in Musanze,Rwanda will now prepare to host the other countries from the region- Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan.

In this year’s games which concluded in Rwanda last month, Kenya clinched the overall title claiming 28 team medals; 10 gold, 8 silver and 10 bronze.

Tanzania and South Sudan cited financial constraints due to lack of government support for their withdrawals while Burundi’s participation was curtailed by the country’s sour diplomatic relationship with the host nation.
