Govt moves to fix stadia

By ZBC Reporter
Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, July Moyo, on Monday, teamed up with stakeholders in touring the National Sports Stadium in Harare as the Government moves to resolve the stadia crisis.
The Minister was accompanied by the Deputy Minister of Youth, Arts, Sports and Recreation, senior officials from the Ministry of Finance, Sports and Recreation Commission, ZIFA, sports administrators and a team of technocrats comprising architects and engineers on the inspection visit.
The Ministry of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing is directly in charge of the giant’s facility.
The National Sports Stadium was condemned late last year by Confederation of African Football, (CAF) after it failed to meet minimum requirements to host international matches.
As a result, Zimbabwe has been barred from playing their next Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Algeria at home after the other stadiums, Barbourfields and Mandava were also deemed unfit.
