The Ministry of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation recently held a Women Sports Festival at Rafomoyo High School in Gutu North where elderly women took part in sporting activities that include sack race, bottle race and tug of war.

The Deputy Minister of Youth, Sport, Arts and Recreation, who is also the legislator for Gutu North constituency, Cde Yeukai Simbanegavi graced the festival and highlighted that the ministry is working towards identifying talent in rural areas in the sports fraternity.

She revealed that sport courts are set to be built in all constituencies to promote sport in the marginalised areas of the country.

Speaking at the same event, the Minister of State for Masvingo Province, Cde Ezra Chadzamira said sporting activities support body fitness, adding that people should therefore prioritise sports.
