OFFICIALS from the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) in Kokstad Management Area were encouraged to exercise and stay healthy at a special work and play event, held on June 28 at Murray Park Stadium.

Employees participated in a variety of sports such as volleyball, football and netball. They were also joined by employees from Ingquza Hill Municipality for a friendly football match.

DCS Special Programmes manager Phindiwe Mbewu encouraged employees to play sport in their spare time to avoid being overweight and to live a healthy lifestyle. She said that the DCS hosts sport events for employees every quarter.

“We invited Ingquza Hill Municipal employees from the Eastern Cape to build social cohesion between Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal government employees,” said Bonginkosi Mbotshwa, the Kokstad DCS communications officer.

He thanked stakeholders for supporting the event.

DCS football team beat Ingquza Hill Municipality football team 8-5 at the event.
