Africa-Press – Tanzania. PRIME Minister Kassim Majaliwa has asked the students who are participating in inter-school competition games to refrain from evil actions that can threaten their dreams.

Majaliwa said this on thursday in Tabora when he officially launched the national level games for Secondary School students and Primary School pupils.

“Don’t make your dreams to end up on the other way, stay away from groups that can destroy your dreams or lead you into evil actions,” said Majaliwa.

On another hand, the Prime Minister has also asked the students to be more disciplined and put more efforts into studies and sports because sports can be good sources of employment.

Also, Majaliwa said all sportsmen and women should realise that this is their special time to showcase their skills and develop their talents academically and sports wise.

The Prime Minister said it is about 22 years since Tabora region organised the national level games in 1999.

“Our expectation is that Tabora will benefit from the knowledge of different visitors from different regions as they will have the opportunity to learn and exchange different cultures.

In addition to that, Majaliwa asked Tanzanians to continue doing physical exercise in order to combat non-communicable diseases.

Also, Majaliwa has used the opportunity to congratulate Tanzanian marathoner Alphonce Simbu for winning the country’s silver in Club Games.

“Simbu is a product of these Inter-School games,” said the PM.

On her part, the Deputy Minister of Culture, Arts and Sports Pauline Gekulu thanked the government for allocating 2bn/- for renovating infrastructure and building playgrounds in 56 schools in the country.

Also, Gekulu said that the renovation of these stadiums will boost the development of sports in the country.

“The renovation of sports grounds in 56 schools clearly shows that our government under President Samia Suluhu Hassan is at the forefront in promoting sports and brings out the talents of our youth,” she said.

Also, RC Buriani said the region has managed to provide 767m/- for the rehabilitation and building of the playgrounds in Tabora.

In her analysis, Batilda said Tabora Boys got 543m/- while 224m/- went to Tabora Girls Secondary School.

“I had the opportunity to meet with players of the women’s national team and I asked them if there was a player from the Tabora and they said no, that’s why my duty is to send players to the national team through this competition,” she explained.

In addition to that, Batilda has asked the Prime Minister to help renovate the Ali Hassan Mwinyi stadium to make an arena of international standards.
