16 June 2007
The Looksmart Solwandle Ngundle Sucouncil will today promote sports among young people at the Gugulethu Sports Complex in light of Youth day.
Kayise Nombakuse, manager of the subcouncil says this initiative aims to show young people that sport is a safe and healthy form of recreation for them.
Speakers at the event will be range from the subcouncil Chairperson Cllr Nondzaliseko Makanda, ward councillors, senior City officials to religious leaders from Gugulethu.
According to a statement the main objectives are not only to promote sports amongst young people, but also to emphasise the dangers of Tuberculosis (TB).
The public can look forward to traditional dances, performances by marimba bands and local choirs. Plays and poetry readings will reflect how young people think about the events captured in 1976.
There will also be testing stations at the complex where participants can establish whether they have TB or not.
