Preparing for Salga games
ONE of the best performing district municipalities in the annual KZN South African Local Government Association (Salga) games, Ilembe, has started preparing for the games.
Tomorrow, the KwaDukuza local municipalities of Mandeni, Maphumulo and Ndwedwe will compete in 16 sports codes at the Stanger High School sports field.
KwaDukuza mayor Ricardo Mthembu said the tournament will give the district’s organisers an opportunity to select teams and individuals to represent Ilembe at the Salga games in December.
“The games also provide opportunities for municipalities under iIlembe district to promote their brands, sporting facilities and local sports talents,” he said.
Youth, sports and gender portfolio chairperson John Phahla will address the event as teams receive their official tournament gear.
