Inter-Municipal Sports of South Africa (Immsa) will be hosting the ninth Limpopo Municipal Games at Lesley Manyathela Stadium in Musina on 9 May. More than 18 municipalities from Limpopo have already signed up to take part in this annual event.
Jomo Mashamaite, President of Immsa and an employee of Capricorn District Municipality (CDM), looks forward to the event and calls upon municipalities to rally behind their sports loving employees, be it financially or otherwise.
â€œParticipation in these games forms part of the employee wellness programme and promotes networking amongst municipal employees. The reality is that a healthy body contributes to availability of employees to perform and that enhances service delivery. The event provides a platform to measure our preparedness to bring back as many trophies as we can when we shall be participating in the Southern Africa Inter-Municipal Sports Association (Saimsa) games comprising of Southern African Development Community municipalities that will take place in September, hosted by Maseru City Council in Lesotho,â€ Mashamaite said.
Sports lovers will be able to test their skills in soccer, volley ball, netball, golf, fishing, tennis, pool, table tennis and darts.
