Ex-USAM President rescues Poly FC
The donation has come in after the pledge he made during the 2018 Principal’s Trophy prize presentation. In an exclusive interview, Dr Tsakama said he has given the sports kit to bail out the football team from the challenges it is currently facing.
Dr Tsakama further explained that sports help students to do better in their studies as it improves their health.
“During my undergraduate days, I played for Polytechnic and University Football Clubs. Sports and football, in particular encouraged and motivated me to do well in my studies. Therefore, I believe and hope this initiative will help the students to be inspired and do better in their studies,” Tsakama reminisced.
Tsakama believes that the donation will help the team improve its performance in the first division of the Southern Religion Football League this season.
He appealed to other well-wishers to take a hand in helping sports at the institution.
In his remarks, the Polytechnic Sports Administrator, Chifundo Tenthani thanked Dr Tsakama for the gesture he has shown towards supporting the team.
Tenthani believed others will also be taking such kind of initiatives of supporting other teams at the institution.
“I am pleased with the gesture taken by our former USAM President, Dr Madalitso Tsakama. Our football team will benefit from this donation as we had a shortage of uniforms,” Tenthani explained.
Taking his turn, Polytechnic Students Union Sports Director and the team’s Captain, Fexter Banda hailed Dr Tsakama for the donation as it will have an impact towards their performance in the Southern Religion Division 1 league.
Banda further said that to appreciate what Dr Tsakama has done, the team will win all the games in the league as the new sports kit will give them more confidence.
So far, the Polytechnic Football team has managed to win all the two games it has played in this new season.
