New Sports Field for Machaka High school pupils

Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Ronald Ozzy Lamola has handed over a Sports field at his former high school in Cunningmore B near Mkhuhlu in Mpumalanga on the 8th of July 2022. The event was graced by the Executive Mayor of Bushbuckridge, Cllr Sylvia Nxumalo, Multichoice CEO  Calvo Mawela, and former Kaizer Chiefs Player Dr. Khumalo.” We want to show gratitude to Minister Ronald Lamula for this greatest opportunity for our children to finally have their own sports field. Today we shall be known from far provinces, and this will be the change Cunningmore B has been longing for and we believe that other ministers will do the same as you have done” said Mr. Khoza from the chieftaincy. The school soccer team had their soccer and netball finals with other neighboring schools, in their new sports field of which they were so happy and grateful about it hence they were playing on a sandy field. Having spoken to one of the learners at Mchaka High School, the learner said that she is very happy with the new development at her school, and she would like to thank Minister Lamola for this exciting development, and she had said she would like to urge all learners, teachers and community members to take good care of the sports field.

“When I was approached by Minister Lamola with his plan to build a sports field, in Mchaka High School, I was not certain if it was a good idea knowing how politically charged this area can be in pushback range. The challenges that you will often face when politics come in the way of simple things like contribution to the community, I was not sure. However, minister Lamula indicated that the Correctional Centre will be built as part of the rehabilitation program for the inmates, with that understanding we then agreed to proceed with this initiative. As multi-choice, we believe that every school in the country does participate in sports. We believe that every child in the country and especially in rural communities must be given the opportunity to play sport, and that will have the facilities that will make it possible for you to be the best you can be as far as young people. You guys are the future of our beloved country, the leaders of tomorrow and we as adults must provide you with opportunities and the energy means to make your dreams and aspirations a reality. I firmly believe that you can be anything in life that you choose to be and it is my belief that providing you with this playing field, there are some amongst you that can rise to the very top” said  Calvo Mawela. Meanwhile, the Executive Mayor of Bushbcukridge Sylvia Nxumalo added by saying that this is a great opportunity for young people in Bushbuckridge because they will have their skills practiced and bettered for greater heights.

Former Kaizer Chiefs Player, Doctor Khumalo said a few words” sports can unite nations and can unite people because if ever a person wants to become a pro, they can do it through sports. I witnessed so much talent from the young boys that opened the field for us, and this shows that we can do more. Speaking to Bushbuckridge News, the Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Ronald Lamola the man behind this great event said, “I am also a product of Mchaka High School, this is one of the schools where I matriculated, and I am very proud to have come back to make this contribution. I want to say that this facility belongs to the school here but can also be used by other schools in the province. In netball, we also promise to do better with the help of multi-choice even without confirmation, but we believe it going to happen. thank you to all sponsors for helping in making the dream of these children become a reality.” concluded Minister Ronald Lamula.
