“When sponsors see positive results in sport they will put money in to develop sport. Harry Gwala district is the best district in KZN to develop sport and I am proud.

“Government must give more money to the Department of Education and Department of Sport and Recreation to support sport in order to help young people stay away from substance abuse and help people to get healthy.”
