NBGS calls for more sport activities?


June 3, 2010 (TURALEI) — Northern Bahr el Ghazal authorities have on Thursday called for more sport activities in the area, saying that the involvement of youth in sports activities in the area will help keep them occupied and away from tribal conflicts.

Robert Majok Kuol, a local youth activist and a football fan told Sudan Tribune from Aweil town that the state has already formed a strong and shining team selected from different teams and is prepared to play with any other national team at their request.

"We have formed a strong team called Aweil star. It is a selection of different team members with strong sporting skills. They have played successful internal matches are still being coached so that these young people can grow up properly," he said.

According to Kuol, the newly formed team called Aweil star played with another local team called Zarah, beating them 3 to 0 on Tuesday. It was a wonderful event attended by almost all top senior state officials and we are planning to play with another local team called Mariek this coming Friday, he said adding that he is hoping to beat this team.

Majok also thanked the state administration for helping the new team with sports materials. He stated that General Paul Malong Awan Anei, Governor of Northern Bahr el Ghazal state showed interest in sport and other youth related activities in the area.

He added that " it was his personal assistance and involvement that helped our team performed satisfactorily to beat western Bahr el Ghazal team at the fifth CPA anniversary held in Yambio town, capital of western Equatoria state, on 19 January this year."

Aweil star is the only team in the state to have received such a gift because of their performance.

Speaking as a government official, he said that he hopes the government will do its best to develop youth who have shown interest in sporting activities as their careers.

They will be open fully-equipped training camps , he said.

He added that the government will continue to be very close to the sport committees in state capital as well as in the counties by assisting them do their best they can in the future.

    Wishing you the best

      Mr. Robert. Sport is not the only option of encouraging youth not to participate in the politics. I thought that you have created some more jobs to the youth, and including good education and health care. People are now dying like animals in the forest and no one is care with one another and most important thing which the government should do to the local people is to bring better education and good health care centres. If that is what you have in your mind and there is any other plan apart from this message then you shut up and you eat those money quitely and don’t published such unvaluable issue to the people again.

      Dear Deng Gorwel,

      You are fully right. The so called Robert Majok is doing all these activities in order to become the commissioner of Aweil East County in the coming government of his corrupt governor Malong Awan Anei.

      Majok has used all tactics and politics of his former party, the NCP to prove himself as the only most close friend and ally to Baggari Malong. Robert majok was an NCP member before he fled to the liberated areas in Aweil East during (apiriit) incident in Aweil town.

      It will be a misfortune to the people of Aweil East County if Robert is appointed as their commissioner in the nest state government.

        Dear Deng Gorwel,
        I totally agree with you folk. The government of Paul Malong should feed they hungry people first and then build hospital facilities for peoples instead of talking about sport as if it’s their first priority. Who will accept to play while their brothers & sisters are starving and some are dying of diseases because there are no doctors to treat them? God change the mentality of our leaders so that they’ll do better job especially development.

      Dear readers,

      Don’t politize the sporting activities Majok wants to restructure in Aweil. It has nothing to do with the polarized politics of the post election.

      Remember for a country to have a strong team brings nothing other than national pride. Aweil to excel in sporting activites becomes the pride of the southern sudan as a whole.

      There will be a time when we need to criticize the government of mismanaging the post election but we need not to have our minds buried under the dubrize of tribal linage or the sectional divisionism.

      Think rational please for the seek of peace and development.

        Dear folks

        There are so many ways that we could develop our home. don’t just seeking with one way. open your mind wider and see development at different views.
        sport is one of the thing that bring youths togather and develop home.
        second somebody who is good at sport could get sholarship and go to school. please let look each angle as a way of development instead taking things personal. no offense, but the fact.let hope for the better of feature, not to day. day is gone and the feature is still a head of us.I hope for the best of our people and land.

        thank you
