The second edition of the games which were first held in Rabat, Tunisia in 2010 is billed for Gaborone next May and are expected to feature more than 2 000 athletes from over 40 African nations.
Speaking to members of the Sports Volunteers’ Movement, North East Branch, at the Mater Spei Multi Purpose Hall last Sunday Raditladi said volunteers would play an important part in the games.
“If you are a citizen of a country the success or failure of the games reflects on you. It’s the responsibility of each of us to make them a success” Raditladi said.
On another note the BNSC mouth piece who is a member of the SVM National Executive Committee called on SVM members to do their all to make the continental youth sports showpiece something to remember in the positive light for a long time.
“When we commit the different skills and knowledge we have we can make the games a success,” she said.
Members of the SVM will be expected to be volunteers, amongst others be team guides, medics, interpreters and use any other skill they have that may be needed at the games.
Other speakers at the event amongst the SVM National Executive Committee Chairperson called members of the organisation to work hard to recruit more members as volunteers are an integral part of sports development and the success of organised completion worldwide.
Meanwhile those who want to join the SVM can contact their nearest Botswana National Sports Council or join on line by visiting the BNSC website.
