Kinnah to lobby for recreation centre in Likoma

Deputy Director of Sports in the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Kinnah Phiri says he will help in lobbying for support to ensure a recreation centre is constructed in Likoma District.

Phiri made the sentiments Sunday during the final match for the K3 million Ashems Songwe Football League held at Madimba Football Ground in the District.

“I have seen that the youth here have potential but lack a good playing ground to showcase their talents.

“I will make sure that the people of Likoma have a recreation centre where all the youth can showcase their talent,” said Phiri.

He said his priority is to ensure that the district is fully developed by ensuring that the recreation centre is constructed hence the need to lobby for funds from relevant authorities which include his ministry.

Phiri – To lobby for support

Member of Parliament (MP) for Likoma, Ashems Songwe said he invited Phiri so that he inspires the youth in the district.

“I am pleased to bring with me Kinnah Phiri who is a legend so that he may inspire the youth while at the same time allow players to showcase their skills with hope that they may be scouted,” said Songwe.

The MP said he decided to introduce the league in order to keep the youth busy and boost their hidden talents rather than engaging themselves in uncalled for behaviours.

Songwe has been supporting the league in the district since 2015.
