This was said last Wednesday, in Luanda, by the Youth and Sports minister, Ana Paula do Sacramento Neto.

The minister was delivering a speech at the national forum on “management and maintenance of juvenile and sports infrastructures”, which brought together sports agents and deputy provincial governors.

The participants in the forum focused mainly on the state of sports infrastructures built in the country in the last ten years and which have already hosted continental and world competitions and events.

The minister said that she also counts on the collaboration of other governmental departments, sports agents, specialists in various areas and youth leaders.   

She mentioned some of the infrastructures that were built in the last ten years and which have hosted important events like African Nations Cup in Basketball (Afrobasket2007), the African Nations Cup in Football (CAN2010), African Nations Cup in Handbal (CAN2008) and the World Hockey Championship in 2013.

According to the minister, after the said events the new infrastructures gradually began to degrade, some of them were even vandalised.

ANGOP has learnt that the sector does not yet have a juridical tool that regulates the management, maintenance and conservation of infrastructures.

The Youth and Sports minister emphasised that infrastructures like youth houses, community centres, camping parks, youth lodges, among others, must be used to secure the multidisciplinary development of young people.

“As we can understand the conception of an infrastructures management model, in regard to our sector, is not an easy task and exclusively of the responsibility of our ministerial department”, she concluded.
