Financial Crisis Hits Youth Games

THE 13th edition of the Zimbabwe National Youth Games have been rocked by a low turnout as some provinces failed to send teams to Mutare due to a crippling financial crisis.

BY KENNETH NYANGANI

Athletics failed to kick off yesterday as scheduled after the local organising committee led by the chief executive officer Cosmas Chiringa failed to facilitate track markings at Sakubva Stadium on time.

Titus Madzingo, who was in charge of athletics, however, said track events were expected to start today.

“We should have started today (yesterday), but as you can see, track markings had not been done. So that is what we are doing today. We are confident that everything has been solved and we can start tomorrow,” he said.

Basketball has been hard hit by low turnout at Mutare Girls High after only six provinces from the male category turned out, while only five provinces from the women’s category took part.

 

Basketball assistant competition director Clive Wemba said he was disappointed with the low turnout, adding that they had resorted to staging the competition in round-robin basis instead of the pool matches.

In the women’s basketball category, Manicaland started strongly, beating Midlands 56-8 in the first match, while favourites Harare wallopped Mashonaland Eash 74-11

Boxing was scheduled to have started yesterday, but failed to do so.

In tennis, only four provinces, including the hosts, had turned up by yesterday.

Bulawayo, Mashonaland Central, Manicaland and Harare were the only represented provinces at Mutare Girls High.

“We have only four provinces that are represented in tennis. We are deeply concerned about the low turnout and if we want by tomorrow (today), we could even finish our games,” the director in that category Vincent Nyatoti said.

At Mutare Teachers’ College, handball went on smoothly with nine provinces including Manica Province from Mozambique.
Manicaland beat Mashonaland West 17-15 in handball.

Handball competition director Allen Mandeya said the Games failed to start early as there were no goal posts.

“(It was a result of) fuel challenges, but anyway, we are happy that the games are in full throttle and there is competition.
We are happy that we also have Team Manica from Mozambique. This is good because this is going to spice up the tournament,” Mandeya said.

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to
    ask!
