"We will have the official launch of the Games on Friday (today) where the Governor and Resident Minister, Chris Mushohwe will be the guest of honour. Once again, we also want to make a passionate appeal to the local business community to chip with any form of assistance that will make life easier for both the participants and the officials
"We are going ahead with the preparations of the National Youth Games and I am happy to announce that we have since restructured the entire system in order to give equal opportunities to all in Manicaland.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It is not about Mutare and Mutare only. The athletes and officials have to be drawn from all the other corners of Manicaland province.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It is also imperative that we note that we desperately need to regain the confidence of all stakeholders including the parents who give us their children to take part in these Games," said Torindoh.
