The head of technical committee of Umjindi Local Football Association say: “There are a lot of young people who are talented in different sporting codes, but they are no longer active because the facilities are not user-friendly. We are worried that they will end up doing bad things in the community and their talent will be a waste.”

Efforts to get hold of the spokesperson of the municipality, Mr Joseph Ngala were fruitless as he was not answering his phone
