Munyonga to speak on injury prevention and doping at SLIZ summer camp
Russell Mhiribidi, the founding SLIZ president, said in line with his organisation’s goal to complement Government efforts of developing sport by introducing Physical Education and Sport as an examinable subject, they have seen it proper to invite Munyonga to create awareness on the effects of doping.
“Sport is a big industry and as such those who deal with athletes at grassroots stages should know how to prevent injuries and issues to do with doping.
“We can’t talk of sport development without antidoping education and awareness campaign otherwise we’re doomed.
“Because the SLIZ Summer Camp attracts representatives from all the country’s 10 provinces, our expectations are that once these participants have been empowered they will organise education sessions to impact their respective stakeholders in schools, clubs, communities, districts and provinces,” said Mhiribidi.
Besides Munyonga, other speakers at the summit are Tanzania’s Dr Joyce Ndabi from the University of Dar es Salaam who will make a presentation on physical activity and the girl child and Zambia’s Musunsa Sombwa who will tackle sport ethical issues.
Sombwa will among other issues talk about age cheating which is a threat to success of sport.
The deputy director of schools sport, physical education, arts and culture in the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, Tendai Tagara, will unpack the new Government policy on physical education and sport (PES) that is set to be rolled out in schools across the country next year.
Mhiribidi will speak on career pathways in physical education and sport. — @ZililoR
