GWERU - The Midlands province is set to host the National Youth Games which are sched-uled for August, Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) provincial officer Simon Masaka has said.
Last year’s games were cancelled after the outbreak of typhoid in Gweru and the city has been given the right to host this year’s competitions.
“Midlands province is going to host the youth games at such venues as Gweru Sports Club and Chaplin High School. We are still working to see that everything is put in order because we are still mobilising resources. We had a challenge last year because each province was sup-posed to pay its affiliation fee but they didn’t pay up since the games were postponed. We are still calling for more sponsors to come on board,” said Musaka.
He said SRC was working to have facilities at Gweru Sports Club revamped.
“We have asked a number of companies and associations to come and assist. The Handball Association of Zimbabwe has indicated a willingness to come and help.
“We are also engaging Midlands State University (MSU) to put their resources there so that they too can enjoy the privilege of using the kind of facilities that they don’t have at their campuses,” he said.
