The Polytechnic Staff Sports Association members will on 10th to 14th December, 2018 participate in the Southern Africa University Inter games at the University Of Limpopo in South Africa.

The games which started in the late 90s attract all Universities within the Southern African countries. These countries include; Namibia, South Africa, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Malawi.  This tournament takes place annually towards the end of the year.

According to one of the organizers, Murray Mwachumu, The Polytechnic staff participants, travel together with their fellow staff members from the other constituents colleges under The University of Malawi, for they are under the same umbrella body called UNIMA Staff Sports Association.

“The main aim of these games is to helps us interact with our fellow College Staff throughout the Southern African Region. As we all know that sports also help to improve our health, this program enhances good health which leads to productive work force within the Colleges,” Mwachumu Said.

Though it is also one way of relaxation after working for the whole year, past records show that it is only in the Athletics and Darts category where the Polytechnic team has won gold and silver medals.

Mwachumu added that the staff members are training hard in the areas like football, netball and volleyball so that this year they should turn the tables.

“We are requesting for financial support from the Polytechnic community, so that this trip should be a success,” he concluded.

From Malawi, other participants are from the Chancellor College, Kamuzu College Of Nursing, College Of Medicine and LUANAR.
