The organisers of the 2020 National Sports Festival will meet with the government and stakeholders to discuss the way forward for the event.

The Minister assured that he will get the Government and other stakeholders to round table in order to discuss on when the games will commence.
Said he: “We’ll not shy away from making decisions based on the reality on the ground. This is a milestone to determine when to start sporting activities, but we would not jeopardise the health and wellbeing of our sportsmen and women.
