This Saturday 29 June hails the yearly Satemwa Tea and Coffee Estate Football Olympiad at the Magara football ground. Each division at Satemwa – Engineering, Coffee, Teas and the Ladies team – will go head-to-head in this fantastic knockout tournament.
In the grandstand will be honoured guests and supporters of all ages who come from the surrounding areas to cheer on family and friends with great gusto. Last year there was a turnout of about 2000 spectators who joined in on the festivities.
Satemwa welcomes all to spend the day in a jubilant atmosphere – be sure to bring your singing voice and dancing shoes! Fingers are crossed that Saturday will be a beautiful day as the weather in the region is a little unpredictable at the moment. With this in mind, here is an overview of the yearly weather pattern at Satemwa.
Loosely between mid-November and mid-April, a thunderstorm can be relied upon at midday and perhaps at night with sunny afternoons and mornings.
From May to September, the months are almost guaranteed to be dry and sunny. This is the time of unimaginably gorgeous evenings with clear skies, bright stars and a moon to dream of! In May, the nights are cool and crisp, whereas by the time September rolls around the nights begin heating up and becoming steamy.
The chiperoni seasons falls in June, July and August. A chiperoni is a light consistent rain, which usually comes in three-, five- or seven-day cycles. On, or around 20 August, the wind changes direction to blow in from the north and the evenings start warming up. The frogs become more enthusiastic, the fireflies come out and people enjoy the evenings outdoors.
So, if you decide to visit Satewa Tea and Coffee Estate during the hot season, enjoy the evenings in the garden of if you visit during the cool season, enjoy the fires indoors!
