All Sports except football will be able to battle for the accolade starting this Month (July). The winner will walk away with a 40 inch Star Times LED television set with a cash price award of Sh100,000.
Sports Journalists president Chris Mbaisi said the award aimed at recognizing best performers in different sports which have been left out.

The Sports Personality of the Month Awards Committee comprises of Eric Ochieng’, Daniel Wahome, Francis Marangu, Wanjiku Mwenda, Michelle Katami, William Njuguna (Rand Brian Yonga.
