Simba Queens get timely boost from company

SIMBA Queens have had a timely boost as they seek to emerge as a force to reckon with in the Mainland Tanzania Women Premier League, given the outfit was presented with a bus by a Dar es Salaam company, Africarries Limited.

The bus, donated by the company as part of its sponsorship for the club, will facilitate the club's trips across the country.

The handover ceremony, which took place early this week, was held at the Africarries Compay offices at Vingunguti in Dar es Salaam.

Speaking at the handover ceremony, Africarries Legal Unit Head Ngassa Mboje said the bus was presented as part of maintaining the firm's efforts to boost its cooperation with the club.

"This is a good start for our partnership with Simba Queens and the outfit's matron, Fatema Dewji, as part of our efforts to support and empower women," he stated.

Speaking after receiving the bus, Fatema, thanked Africarriers Limited for sponsoring the outfit and providing them with the bus.

She disclosed: "Although the sponsorship will come to an end at the end of the season, I am confident it will be a catalyst for our pursuit of the silverware.''

''This kind of contribution is a boost for women's football in the country," she stated.

She said Simba Queens promise Africarrier Limited and all of the club's fans to defend the title.

Simba Queens will take on Dodoma's Baobab Queens at the latter's stadium on May 13.

Africarrier Limited's Director Mohamed Raza Pirbhal said he believes in the development of women and Simba Queens.

He pledged to continue supporting the club which is in the race for the title this season.

"We have provided this bus to facilitate transport but there is a special gift for you if you win the league's title, there is your special gift," he stated.

The ceremony was attended by Simba Queens players, technical bench, stakeholders, and journalists.
