Nurturing talent from a young age has always been the key factor to the success of any football club. Studies have shown reduced crime rates in areas with sports-based youth development initiatives. This story is about the boy who started playing football at Bidii Sports Academy when he was a mere standard two pupil at Mwithumwiru primary school in Meru.

This is the story of a boy who was appointed as the captain of his team to lead his elders and commanded respect. The story is about none other than Clement Kawere who as a kid, as a player and as a captain has been fantastic.

His football dream started at the KeMU football pitch just beyond the school gates of Mwithumwiru primary school. His dazzling brilliance demanded recognition. His football prowess has ensured that he always stands above the rest of his peers. He has been the captain of Bidii Sports Academy Under- 15 team since he was in class 4. Everyone enjoys seeing him play.

He started playing as a left fullback and this is the start of a long journey. He is not only the leader on the football field but also the leader in class. He has been number one in class at Mwithumwiru primary school since he was in standard 3 up to standard six.  When information came from his ever supportive dad Elijah Kawere that his son was transferring to DEB Primary school in Nanyuki it was not the story that his peers and football lovers expected to hear.

His football role models are Martin “Puyol” Mburugu the former U-19 captain of Bidii Sports Academy and former KeMU fullback “His Majesty” Michael Odongo. Odongo who played for KPL team Thika United in 2017 season is currently at Vihiga United in the NSL. Always reliable, the motivator and mobilizer of his peers Kawere the purple machine would not be a child for long
