Alfred appointed as curator for sport in Masiphumelele
By Vince van der Bijl
A discussion with John le Roux over the need for proper maintenance of our sporting facilities opened the door for Buyile Alfred Mazosiwe, a founder and player of the Masiphumelele Rugby Club, to be appointed the head curator. He will be responsible for the maintaining the facilities at the Masi Rugby club, Ukhanyo Primary school and Masiphumelele High School.
There are many new facilities that have been constructed recently at the Masi HS including a rugby field at the High School, and two netball courts, so he has his work cut out for him. The new rugby coach at Ukhanyo PS, Ayabulela Nadyokwe , has been seconded to him during the Covid period and possibly beyond. Alfred and Aya have worked together in construction, so have the experience required. They are carpenters and builders so will be able to maintain the courts, nets, offices and surrounds; and with the help of Longman’s Nursey ensure that the new rugby field at the High School with the rugby posts just installed, will be in great shape when school sport opens up.
They have already built shelving in the storerooms, paved areas at the Primary school and have a list as long as your arm to upgrade the sports facilities. This is an exciting project.
