Yesterday Sports and Recreation Minister Makhosini Hlongwane applauded his Cabinet colleague Minister of ICT, Supa Mandiwanzira, for playing a key role in facilitating the NetOne sponsorship package that will bankroll the Warriors’ 2017 African Cup of Nations campaign.
I want to first and foremost thank my colleague, Minister of ICT Supa Mandiwanzira for doing this. First it is for working with all the parastatals that are under his area of influence to support sport in Zimbabwe. This is not the first time that the Minister has come along to do that and before the current ZIFA board came, we worked very closely with the parastatals under Minister Mandiwanzira to make sure that the national team gets support, so I must really appreciate him most profoundly for that.
Hlongwane also commended Mandiwanzira for appointing sportspersons to become chairs of those companies that fall under his ministry an example being Peter Chingoka who was appointed NetOne acting chairperson.
