11 February 2019 | Sports
Uutoni made this call at Oshakati in the Oshana Region while receiving a sponsorship of N$50 000 from Ali Dharani of the Rani Group on Saturday.
He also urged sport fans and youth entrepreneurs to take stands at the expo.
Uutoni said the expo is endorsed by cabinet as a national event and will serve as a platform where stakeholders come together to deliberate on the challenges facing the sporting sector in the country.
“Come up with an idea that we can put into action and implement in the interest of the nation,” Uutoni urged, adding that job opportunities for unemployed youth would be created through sport once all the stakeholders are organised and work together.
According to the minister, the main purpose of the envisaged sport expo is to unite men and women in the sporting sector.
Uutoni thanked the Rani Group for its financial support, while its director Dharani said his company is ploughing back into the community by supporting the expo.
“My business partners agreed for us to fund the sport expo as a way to empower the youth where we can, as they are our future,” said Dharani.
Oshakati mayor Angelus Iiyambo, the town's CEO Werner Iita and representatives of youth and sport organisations attended the sponsorship handover event.
