TWO non-governmental organisations have joined forces and will be hosting a street soccer tournament on Saturday, 2 April, at Imbali Unit J near Ntoko’s Tavern.

The tournament is the brainchild of Progressive Youth Transformation and Alhidaaya Dawa Network, both of which are in Ward 16.

The event organiser, Sthembiso Dladla, from Progressive Youth Transformation, said the tournament will be a six-a-side and there are many great prizes to be won.

“We want young people to be busy during the last weekend before schools open for the second term. We are planning to invite the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) representatives so they can highlight the importance of registering to vote, and the voting process.

About 12 teams have confirmed they will be competing for top position.

“Young people need to know about the importance of voting and how that affects­ them if they do not vote,” said Dladla.

Mxolisi Mncube, from Alhidaaya Dawa Network, said their involvement with the IEC stems from a report from IEC that few people registered for local government elections expected to take place before end of the year.

The joining fee for each team is R50, which must be paid by 9am on Saturday.

Dladla said they are targeting team players aged between 17 and 25.

For more information, contact Dladla on 083 480 1123 or Mncube on 084 258 2077.
