SRC appoints Zone VI management committee

HARARE – The Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) has appointed a management committee whose mandate is to mobilise resources for the Team Zimbabwe ahead of the Zone VI Under-20 Youth Games.

The Games have been set for Bulawayo and will be held in December next year.

Zimbabwe is expected to field teams in all the sporting disciplines that will be on offer at the sporting fiesta that showcases the best of sport in Southern Africa.

The sporting codes that will be on offer include athletics for the visually impaired, basketball, boxing, football, netball, judo, tennis and swimming.

The Zimbabwe management committee will be led by Eugenia Chidhakwa, a former SRC Board member.

Sebastian Garikai, who will be in charge of the technical department, will deputise Chidhakwa whilst Patience Maramba will head the medical team.

Chidhakwa is also Chef de Mission to these games.

An elated Chidhakwa said she was humbled by the appointment but also noted that a lot still needs to be done in order to adequately prepare for the games.

“It is an honour for me and the management committee to be entrusted with this enormous task of preparing the Zimbabwean team to these prestigious games,” said Chidhakwa.

“We would like to assure the nation that we are ready for the challenge but we will need the support of everyone if we are to succeed. 

“Our mission is to prepare the Zimbabwean team so that it comes tops in this regional developmental competition,” Chidhakwa said.

The former Bindura University lecturer appealed to the local sponsors to come on board.

“We are kindly appealing to the corporate sector to partner us as there are quite a number of benefits which can be derived out of their partnership with us and these include exposure to the Southern African region as these are regional games which will draw 10 countries,” Chidhakwa said.
