JB Pumps in K100m for Sports Development
The gods of sports have smiled again on the country as the Joyce Banda Foundation on Sunday launched the K100 million inter constituency football and net ball leagues.
President Joyce Banda made the announcement Sunday evening at Sanjika palace in Blantyre where the One World Football through the Jack Brewer Foundation donated 11,000 balls to the foundation.
“In an effort to contribute to the development of sports in this country, I’m pleased to announce the introduction of the Joyce Banda Foundation Inter Constituency Football and Net ball Leagues and it is worthy K100 million,” said the president while attracting a loud round of applause.
However President Banda has asked Malawians not to debate about the sponsorship.
“I want everybody to understand very clearly, that this is a Joyce Banda Foundation initiative. I’m saying this because the Joyce Banda Foundation was born in 1997,
“So this Joyce Banda must be allowed to be a private citizen and it doesn’t make sense that football should cause debate anywhere,” she said.
President Banda has however asked companies to join government in developing sports in the country.
Meanwhile, Net ball Association of Malawi General Secretary Helen Mpinganjira welcomed the development.
“We thank the Joyce Banda Foundation for the initiative and it will help us to reach the constituencies which were unreachable. Let me ask the members of Parliament to be informing us of the event,” she said.
The sponsorship comes after the K120 million Presidential Initiative on Sports which runs annually.—Zodiak Online
