The organisation’s committee members will also participate in the event as the finance officer will be leading another team in Chipinge South at Mabee Community grounds.
PYD is advocating for a democratic and prosperous nation where youths should be encouraged to take a lead in participating in electoral issues in Zimbabwe. They are running with the slogan, ”Your vote is your voice, your voice is your right”. PYD is known for chanting ” youth for the youth” has the youth at heart because they believe that is where the political, economic and social concerns of the nation are centred on.
The Director of the organisation Mr Claris Madhuku emphasised that sports can help in resolving conflicts and it brings people from all different spheres of life together that is what initiated the sports gala event. His remarks were, ” we will be sending the message to encourage young people to register to be voters and inspect their names during the voter inspection period which will commence in the following weeks”.
