Mehluli Sibanda in Goromonzi
IN a move that will come as great news to girl child activists, boys and girls prizes are the same at this year’s Copa Coca-Cola.
Speaking at this year’s official launch at Rusununguko High School in Goromonzi District on Tuesday, Coca-Cola senior brand manager Vee Chibanda said the prize money for the boys and girls is the same this year.
In the past boys used to get more than girls in terms of prizes but as from this year that will no longer be the case.
This means the winners of this year’s competition will walk away with $5 400.
At the draw for the national finals conducted at the launch, last year’s boys winners Rusununguko were drawn to play against champions of Masvingo and Mashonaland West. Chidyamakono, the girls champions since 2013 will play theit group matches against Mashonaland Central and Mashonaland West provincial winners.
The official launch was graced by former Zimbabwe Warriors players, Dickson Choto, More Moyo and Justice Majabvi as well as Mighty Warriors stars Rudo Neshamba and Greater Bande.
