Mayor backs Citizens Ladies

HARARE - Harare mayor Herbert Gomba said he would do everything within his jurisdiction to ensure that Citizens Ladies trip to Durban, South Africa, for the African Volleyball Zone VI Championships is a success.

The Citizens Ladies held a fundraising dinner at Royal Harare Golf Club on Friday night where they hoped to raise $95 000 to cater for their registration, affiliation fees, accommodation, food, training equipment, allowances, medical cover and treatment for the trip.

The tournament is set to run from November 30 to December 8.

ZB Life led the way by coming on board as the Gold sponsor unveiling a $8 610 kit sponsorship for both the Citizens Ladies and the men’s team.

“I’m advised that since the launch of Harare City Volleyball Club, the club has been running with the theme ‘Organising for Success’ and indeed the club has been successful both on the court and administratively.

“The club has been successful through and through. In 2018, the club moved a gear up and is running with the theme ‘Encourage, Empower and improve the welfare of Youth (Girl Child) through volleyball,’” Gomba said.

Harare City volleyball chairperson Bozman Matengarufu welcomed the support the Citizens Ladies received on the night.

“I would like to extend a very warm and special welcome to our friends from the corporate world who have been the backbone of sport particularly soccer and golf over the years,” he said.

“We have a lot of unemployed youths in our midst, who are intellectually up, and physically fit. We accept anything on offer, be it part-time assignments, special assignments not even permanent jobs.”

Harare City Volleyball team manager Godknows Jembere was encouraged with the interest that the event generated despite invitations going out on a short notice.

“We are grateful at the turn out by corporates and individuals which shows a vote of confidence on both the team and administration,” he said.
