Zikhale Ng’oma committed to improve youth development through sports



Member of Parliament for Nkhata Bay South, Kenneth Zikhale Ng’oma who is also Minister of Homeland Security has said that he is set to implement projects that will see youths prospering through sports.

 Speaking recently when he addressed a youth rally at Chituka Ground in his constituency Ng’oma said youths are key to national development hence the need to invest through different interventions.

Earlier, before the rally, there was a  football match between Lukana FC and Nigeria FC and netball match between Lukana and Nigeria.

He said that it is essential to provide opportunities for everyone to realise their full potential considering their talents.

“Not all who go far with education would have a chance to hold top positions as directors or ministers hence the need to diversify youths’ opportunities,” said Ng’oma.

He then pledged to continue sponsoring football and netball leagues in his area to prevent youth from indulging in immoral activities.

Deputy Director of Sports in the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Kinnah Phiri, hailed the minister for his interest in sports.

The former Flames coach, later disclosed that he had identified five football players who played during an exhibition match and said would present them to teams which play in the country’s top-flight league.
