There is no reason why we can’t win these games,” said ToBata.Athletes were warned that strict disciplinary measures will be taken in tackling problems amongst athletes.ENB will be sending a total of 600 athletes to participate in 17 sporting codes. Sending the entire team to Kimbe would cost a total of K2.5 million; K1.9 million of which the provincial government will provide. The management team now has been tasked with the responsibility of raising and or securing another K600,000.Another two briefings will be held, similar to the one which was held last Friday.The second briefing is scheduled for next Friday and will be held at the Vunapope Archdiocese Hall.Between the times scheduled for the second and third briefing, Tale told athletes that the management team will also be taking time to personally approach the different sporting codes to have talks with them.The short program began with a word of prayer that was led by Nevill Aporo and ended with a team chain prayer.(Team ENB during their chain prayer on Saturday.)last_img
