Blantyre City Mayor, Wild Ndipo, on Sunday pledged to continue bankrolling football and netball tournaments, pegged at K3 million, in Chigumula Township, Blantyre.
“This competition will now be held annually. As the councillor for this area, I need to keep the youth busy so that they should not go astray. I cannot afford to see the youth in an idle state,” said
Ndipo is councillor for Chigumula Ward representing the Democratic Progressive Party.
He spoke at the end of the inaugural month-long Wild Ndipo Bonanza held at Mzamba Primary School.
Sundowns won the football trophy after beating Mzamba United 4 – 3 on post-match penalties in the final after a two-all draw.
The champions captain, Godfrey Lapuwa, hailed Ndipo for sponsoring the tournaments, which saw Mibawa Sisters win netball championship after defeating Chiswe Sisters 25-18.
