What you need to know:

  • Soya chairman Chris Mbaisi said they will not be rewarding top performers in area of sport, but rather recognizing efforts and possibilities during the last year.
  • “Because sports are a resilient human endeavour, we shall host a sports symposium and a gala night to honour a few people who made an effort to overcome the diversity. The symposium will basically try to offer solutions to such situations where topics on mental health, sports fame/failure and investment, sports media and branding and doping will be tackled,” said Mbaisi.

This year’s Sports Personality of the Year Awards (Soya) set for Saturday in Naivasha will not have the usual categories of excellence.
