Ministry of Youth and Sports has finally submitted its sports restart roadmap to the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19.
The ministry’s spokesperson Simon Mbvundula yesterday said the proposed roadmap was submitted on Friday.
He said: “They did not give us a hint on when a determination would be made. So, all we have to do is wait until a decision is made.”
Last week, the ministry asked for associations’ input on the proposed restart measures.
“We wanted them [associations] to tell us the areas they feel should be scrapped off or added with justification and they did,” he said.
Among the measures proposed by the ministry titled Guidelines for Reopening of Sporting Activities Amid Covid-19 Pandemic, are strict adherence to the coronavirus preventive measures once sports resumes.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu said they are confident that an approval will be sought for sports.
“The Minister of Youth and Sports [Ulemu Msungama] was also optimistic of resumption at our meeting held last Wednesday,” he said.
Malawi National Council of Sports suspended all sporting activities in March this year as a preventive measure against the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
