Spanish cyclist donates sports gear
Spanish cyclist Joan Menendez yesterday donated two sets of jerseys and eleven foot balls to the Tanzania national soccer women team at the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) premises yesterday.
The donor presented the gears to the deputy Minister for Information, Culture and Sport, Fenela Mukangara, early in the morning.
Menendez, who used his bicycle to ride from Dar es Salaam to Moshi enroute to scale the Kilimanjaro Mountain, said he saw the ladies team during the eight edition of the African Nations Cup held in South Africa last year.
The soccer federation has appreciated the donation that has been received in time ahead of international assignments later this year.
There is no camping for Twiga Stars at the moment but the TFF spokesman Boniface Wambura said the sports gear will be reserved for the team.
