Mnangagwa Officially Hands Over Refurbished Sports Facilities To Bulawayo Council

Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa has officially handed over to the Bulawayo City Council and Ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development sports facilities that were refurbished by the government ahead of the African Union Sports Council (AUSC) Region 5 Under 20 Youth Games that were held in Bulawayo last December. The hosting of the AUSC youth games in Bulawayo paved way for the refurbishment of stadia and other sport facilities. The facilities which had been temporarily handed over to the games local organising committee to allow for work to be done, have since been officially handed over to their respective custodians. Officially handing over the facilities at Bulawayo city swimming pool, Vice President Mnangagwa said all the equipment acquired for the games will remain at the respective sports venues in Bulawayo. A number of companies which supplied equipment for these games are yet to be paid and Cde Mnangagwa reassured them they will be given their dues as all outstanding debts have been transferred to central government through the Ministry of Sport, Arts and Culture. Among the sporting facilities that were refurbished is Barbourfields stadium which had renovations done on the ablution facilities and changing rooms. White City stadium had a tartan track for athletics installed while an additional swimming pool was built at the Bulawayo swimming pool.
