The Region 5 Youth Games were suspended following poor condition of one of the diving platforms at the newly built first ever Kamuzu Institute for Sports Aquatic Centre.
The Atlas Malawi has learnt that today’s program was indefinitely suspended due to poor workmanship on the pool which saw the clock not working and again diving platforms peeling off.
One of the Malawi athletes, Muhammad Alli Mussa got injured during the incident.
Malawi team Coach Yona Walesi has confirmed with the media of Mussa’s injury.
The facility is into its first week of use after it’s partial completion ahead of the Region 5 games.
Government spent a whooping K9.4 billion to the Chinese Civil Engineering Construction Corporation who were trusted to construct the aquatic center.
The money was used to construct 50m long international Olympic swimming pool, 25m long training swimming pool, new covered stands, rehabilitation of existing stands, double storey VIP wing and social services block.
Officials are yet to comment on the incident.
My Malawi why always ????
