Nape who recently toured Kigoma region, made the announcement after finding that some of sports officials of the region are based in Dar es Salaam with resultant poor development of sporting activities.

He said it becomes difficulty for a sports or entertainment official who is residing in Dared Salaam to closely follow what is happening in his region.

He said the officials are making use of the posts for personal gains while failing to serve the people who placed him or her into the office.

He said for an effective leadership to prevail, sports official should stay close to the fraternity he or she is supposed to serve, and that’s the way forward for leadership.

"Don’t elect officials who are based in Dar es Salaam, they will only be available during the election and thereafter will be no shows," said the Minister.

He said the government urges all sports officials to have a look of their constitutions and workout on annual calendars from distract level.
