Sports Development of sport is meaningless without the involvement of youths

Government says the development of sport would be meaningless without the involvement of youths.

Lusaka province minister Lameck Mangani has since urged youths to take sport seriously instead of engaging themselves in social vices such as alcohol, prostitution and drug abuse.

Mr Mangani says sport is a unifying factor hence the need for young people to effectively participate in it.

The provincial minister was speaking in Kafue today when he officiated at the re-launch of Sports for All Programme in Kafue district.

Mr Mangani also watched a football match by female school youths.

He said sports recreation is important in the overall mental and physical development of young people.

Mr Manganai also said if taken seriously, sport can could help youths earn a living thereby lifting Zambia’s flag high internationally.

He said government attaches great importance to sport but reminded youths to be disciplined.

The provincial minister said government is committed to supporting the development of all sporting disciplines such as soccer, boxing, rugby, cricket, golf, basketball, tennis among others.
