National Association of Secondary Heads (NASH) acting president Arthur Maposa says he is moving in to bring sanity to the COPA Coca-Cola schools tourney.
Maphosa made the remarks at the official launch of this year’s edition held at Pamushana High School in Bikita.
In his address, the acting president reiterated that challenges of cheating cannot continue eclipsing their good works.
“As NASH nothing can obliterate our vision and objectives that we share with COPA Coca-Cola in inspiring young footballers to achieve their dreams through this competition,” said Maposa.
“The will to get to the upper podium and lift the cup has led to challenges, where in some instances we do have the win at all cost syndrome hence the scourge of cheating creeps in.
“We have had these challenges, but they cannot eclipse our good works,” he said.
He said NASHs’ mandate was to catch players young.
“The issue we are seized with is to come out clean in answer to the equivocal concern amongst our members – to cheat or not to cheat?
“Through our NASH structures we will move to bring sanity in the running of all our sports codes,” he said.
Riding on the current trending statement, the acting president declared a finality on age cheating saying:
“It will not work and yes I will not make it work and I will make the proper age system work finish, closed.”
