From Daily News, Dar es Salaam
By DAILY NEWS Reporter

THE government has warned individuals and municipalities against selling and building on empty spaces preserved for sport activities.

The remark was made by the Minister for Information, Culture and Sports, George Mkuchika, yesterday during the commemoration of the National Sports Day at the Mnazi Mmoja grounds in Dar es Salaam.

Mkuchika said the tendency by few people who are driven with personal gains to misuse playing grounds, impedes the development of sports in the country.

He gave an example of Nyamagana Stadium in Mwanza, which was on the brink of being sold to an investor, but was rescued after good efforts from the ministry.
