Parastatals should build sports complexes for workers

Dear editor,
WHEN we got independence in 1964, our first president had to ensure that all parastatal companies set up sports complexes.All mine companies, Zambia Railways, Zambia State Insurance, ZNPF, Zanaco, etc, had sports complexes where their employees and families could pass time after work. It was a wonderful set-up and there was less alcohol abuse compared to today when there are no sports complexes.
This is pitiful because our children have resorted to drinking because there are no sports centres any more.
The Minister of Sports should intervene by urging all parastatals and other corporate organisations to embrace sporting activities.
