The unity was emphasized on Saturday at Nsanje Community ground where National Initiative For Civic Education Trust organized a football bonanza that aimed at civic educating masses to register in the forth coming voter registration scheduled to commence on 19th September in the district.
During the match, five district governors from DPP and other political parties spoke in turns telling people the importance of registering and peaceful coexistence.
Speaking on why NICE Trust chose to use a football bonanza, Civic Education Officer for the district Kondwani Malunga said football is a crowd puller sport and in so doing they would be able to reach a wide cross-section of people.
“If we could just call for a meeting without this football event attachment, I don’t think we could experience this massive turnout, therefore the bonanza has helped us to reach out to many, men and women, and young and old because of the popularity of this sport,” Malunga said.
He called upon people who are eligible voters to register and asked the supporters to emulate the cordial relationship among governors.
Nsanje embarks on voter registration on Wednesday, 19th September 2018.This is the sixth phase of voter registration.
The football match was played between Magulugulu and Zion football clubs. Magulugulu won 2-1 against Zion to pocket K22, 000 in a K40, 000 bonanza.
