Dim­baza res­i­dent and sport en­thu­si­ast Zizo Papu was elected as the gen­eral sec­re­tary of the SA Hand­ball Fed­er­a­tion in Jo­han­nes­burg last week­end.

The Elec­tive An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing hosted at the South African Sports Con­fed­er­a­tion and Olympic Com­mit­tee (SASCOC) of­fice saw Papu as the only rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the East­ern Cape elected to serve in the na­tional struc­ture.

Papu is also the pres­i­dent of the Buf­falo City Metro Hand­ball As­so­ci­a­tion, the gen­eral sec­re­tary of the East­ern Cape Hand­ball As­so­ci­a­tion and the Buf­falo City Metro Sports Coun­cil, and is the chair­per­son of Women’s Cricket at Bor­der Cricket.

On top of that, she works as an as­sis­tant di­rec­tor at the depart­ment of hu­man set­tle­ments in East Lon­don.

“I also ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in cricket, hand­ball and net­ball, al­though I some­times have two meet­ings sched­uled on Satur­days and Sun­days, but time man­age­ment works for me,” Papu said.

“I am do­ing all this for the love and pas­sion I have for sport and want to leave be­hind a legacy which will in­spire our youth to fol­low suit.”

When asked how she felt about be­ing elected, she said: “It’s hum­bling to have been elected at a na­tional level and I am tremen­dously grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity as I didn’t ex­pect it.

“I would like to ac­knowl­edge all the mem­bers who stood by me all along and who sup­ported and truly be­lieved in me, it is much ap­pre­ci­ated.”
