Sport, Arts and Recreation Minister Kazembe Kazembe

Sporting bodies have been warned against taking the “all too usual casual approach” in their operations and have been called to shape up if they are to meet the requirements of the time.

In an interview on the sidelines of a sports stakeholders meeting in Bulawayo, Minister of Sport, Arts and Recreation Kazembe Kazembe, revealed that as part of government’s 100-day plan, sports bodies had to shift from taking sport as a past time to considering it as serious business.

He indicated that results would be required from him thus in turn he wanted sporting bodies to up their delivery levels.

During the meeting that was part of the Minister’s tour of the country’s sports, arts and recreational centres, sports associations highlighted a number of challenges they faced in executing their duties with finance major among them.

Under the new dispensation, ministries have come up with 100-day targets that have to be met with sub-structures called upon to also play their part in the process.
