The Ministry of Youth Development and Sports says it will take on board suggestions that various Government departments have put forward as regards the Bingu National Stadium.
Chief sports officer responsible for infrastructure in the ministry of youth development and sports Joseph Kayamba, Wednesday said this after the ministry officials conducted a special tour at the stadium for the government departments representatives to appreciate the new Bingu National stadium in Lilongwe, which has a space to hold capacity of 41, 100 people.
“We organized this function for these officials to appreciate the features of the new stadium and at the same time for them to take note of any shortfall that may be there so that these defects could be recommended to the contractor for improvement.
“We have received several positive suggestions from the government representatives which we may wish to take into account. Some officials have highlighted on the need of re-working on the VVIP stand and improve on its current design. For example, there is need to include a canopy, space and maybe even some stairways that may lead into the field,”aid Kayamba.
He further said as Bingu National stadium is unique in Malawi, the function today has been of great importance as it has encouraged the ministry to move forward.
Some of the government departments that were represented are the department of Public Events, the Office of the President and Cabinet, State House, Ministry of Information, the Malawi Police Service and the Malawi Defense Forces. -ManaFollow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
