| May 4, 2015

Workers day for some public servants was celebrated through a tournament dubbed May 1 Sports Health Festival to encourage good health at the work place and interact with other organisations.

The Ministry of Health, Stanbic Bank, National AIDS Coordinating Agency, Ministry of Education, and that of Infrastructure, Science and Technology, locked horns to compete in different sporting codes ranging from fotball, volleyball to netball at the Bank of Botswana grounds.

When officiating at the event, Sensei Thuto Thuto, the self-employed, life coach, and chief executive efficer of Focus Management Company, said he cherished inspiring people of all ages and walks of life to improve their fitness so they could ultimately feel happier with themselves and their lives.

“I take pleasure and pride in training and mentoring athletes in different sporting codes and I believe that fitness is essential and key to a healthy national development and empowerment,” he said.

He encouraged the teams to respect time as it was through time that they could improve themselves and thereby improve their lives. Sensei Thuto said the teams should know that cooperation could lead them to greater heights, adding that it was through cooperation that team spirit could lead to team work.

He also discouraged them against the habit of multiple concurrent love partnerships, lack of exercise, and poor nutrition, saying they should see to it that they lived a healthy life.

“We must walk the talk,” he called upon the workers.

The Ministry of Health scooped the Overall winner’s trophies in Football and Volleyball Males, while the Ministry of Education emerged champions earning Overall winning trophies in Netball and Volleyball ladies.

Individual trophies were also awarded to players who made an amazing impact in their codes, which included ‘Best goalkeeper and Best player’ under football while under volley ball trophies were given to ‘Best shooter, Best defender and Best mid court’ and lastly, Best attacker, Best blocker, setter and Valuable player, under Netball.

The day was made funny by actor and entertainer, Jethrow Ntebele who trades by the name ‘Umaga’. His buoyant jokes were able to keep the crowd lively throughout the day.
