HARRY Gwala attained third position in the South African Local Government Association Games (Salga) for the first time since the inception of the Games in 1998.

The Harry Gwala District made history with their achievement at this year’s 20th edition of the Salga KZN Department of Sport and Recreation Games, which were held in Pietermaritzburg.

District Municipality Mayor Mluleki Ndobe praised all the participants for elevating the flag of the district.

“We are very proud of the performance by our team this year.

“This is the year not to be forgotten,” said Ndobe.

The games began on Thursday, December 6, and ended on Sunday, December 9 at uMgungundlovu District in Pietermaritzburg.

The top five out of the 11 participating districts were Ethekwini, Amajuba, Harry Gwala, uMgungundlovu and King Cetshwayo.

“Sports development is indeed very important in our society as it curbs social ills such as drug abuse, diseases, and alcohol abuse,” said Ndobe.
