Dynamos legend Moses Chunga believes the appointment of Kirsty Coventry as Minister of Sports will bring massive development to the sector.
Chunga said Coventry’s rich sporting background and her track record in leadership, with international sports organisations, made her as the best person for the job.
“It’s something that was long overdue. Personally, I wasn’t surprised because she has been in the trenches and has seen it all,” the 52-year-old told The Herald.
“I am sure the coming in of Kirsty will bring a massive change to the face of the sport in Zimbabwe. She is someone who understands the joy of winning and the agony of missing out on the podium, as opposed to most of her predecessors.”
Coventry takes over from Kazembe Kazembe, who has been reassigned to the Ministry of Information Communication Technology and Cyber Security.
