THE inaugural eMatimatolo Sports Day was held on June 3 at the Matimatolo Sports Grounds.

The day’s activities began with a “Walk Promoting Healthy Living” after which a 10 km distance run took place.

This memorable occasion highlighted taxi operators and community members competing with each other in a day filled with fun and entertainment.

Although the response was less than expected, runners taking part in this inaugural event thoroughly enjoyed their day.

Mr Musa H. Dlomo, chairperson of the Amatimatolo Taxi Association and a leader of “Hlokomila” praised the good organisation and the spectacularly scenic route for the run.

Mr Joe Gwala presented the top 10 athletes with medals and R1 000 per person.

In his speech he expressed his appreciation and congratulated the organisers and all who contributed to making the 2018 Matimatolo Sports Day the huge success it was.

The organisers look forward to growing this event in 2019.

The organisers would like to express heartfelt gratitude to all businesses and organisations who contributed generously toward the prizes.

The top five winners representing the community of eMatimatolo were:

1. Lindelani Ximba

2. Zama Dlamini

3. Nhlengethwa Bhekie

4. Siyabonga Khanyile

5. Sando Mzobe
