The Ministry of Sport and Recreation is delighted to join the nation in congratulating Dr Phillip Chiyangwa on his recent appointment as vice president for the Africa Cup of Nations Committee.
The Minister of Sport and Recreation Makhosini Hlongwane said this new soccer administration assignment conferred to Dr Chiyangwa unequivocally illustrates Zimbabwe’s sport administration gravitas which continues to impact regional, continental and international spheres of influence.
“To this effect, the sky is the limit for Dr Philip Chiyangwa and other sport administrators in Zimbabwe,” he said.
In his ascendency as CAF vice president, Dr Chiyangwa must be assured that he has the support of Zimbabwe’s sport constituency which in essence is an embodiment of the Ministry of Sport and Recreation’s Sport Diplomacy Programme, notes the Sports Minister.
In as much as this recent credential appendage to his sport administration memoir in the making is a personal accolade, it is as good an accolade for the football fraternity in Zimbabwe.
This particular achievement by Dr Chiyangwa also complements successes by other Zimbabwean sport administrators who have assumed influential administration assignments within regional, continental and global sport management bodies.
In the same vein, the Minister of Sport and Recreation Makhosini Hlongwane empathises with Dr Tommy Sithole’s untimely electoral loss as Secretary General of the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) elections in Djibouti this morning.
On the other hand, the Sports Minister expresses his profound gratitude to Dr Sithole’s contribution to the Global Olympic Movement.
Therefore, the Minister of Sport and Recreation wishes him well in his future endeavors and all his noble aspirations directed towards the interests of sport development in Zimbabwe and beyond.
