At a function held at Chiwowa Primary School in the district, Gwengwe described idle minds as “dangerous.”

He said his vision was to see the participants in the tournament graduating to bigger teams that play in the top-flight Super League and Chipiku.

Details of the trophy are that the money will be shared equally for the netball and football teams.

As at the launch, 24 football and 20 netball teams had already registered. Besides, the money, Gwengwe also gave out balls and jerseys.

Ulemu Msungama, Lilongwe City South parliamentarian, said he was “delighted” to see his fellow MP doing positive endeavours.

“I will do the same in my constituency,” he said.

Dowa South East legislator, Chimwendo Banda, also attended the function.

Senior group village headman Kamundi said it was the first time for a development of that nature to take place in his area.

Why do you do this to the youth? Why not launch a scholarship program or something that will truly transform the lives of these young people. You probably need votes, but do the right thing and be different.

There is nothing wrong with what Hon Gwengwe has done..That is part of development. Remember, development is a multifaceted concept..It embraces different parameters. By the way, have you been told that this is the only thing he has done to the area? Gwengwe is a brilliant youngman and he propably knows which area are equally important..And am sure those scholarship programs are already on the ground only that they haven’t been publicized..Lets commend him for what he has done..Paying school fees for needy students is the first request every new MP faces before other problems..

That’s not a valid point about scholarship.Do you how much it takes for a scholarship?How many youth were they going to be selected for a scholarship?But by sponsoring such leagues it will cater almost everyone in the area
