THE Tanzania Women Football Association (TWFA) will conduct an extra ordinary meeting at the Msimbazi Centre in Dar es Salaam on Saturday, to discuss the association’s constitutional amendments.
According to the TWFA Chairperson, Lina Kessy, the association’s constitutional amendments would be made in conformity with the Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) statutes as directed by the federation’s Legal, Ethics and Players Status Committee. The committee advised all the TFF members to amend their constitutions for them to suit the federation’s statutes.
Lina said already the TWFA Executive Committee has gone through the proposed amendments, ready for tabling. Apart from the Executive Committee; other members of the meeting tomorrow will be the TWFA Chairperson, Secretary General and regional members of the general meeting.
The meeting will be graced by the Assistant Director of Sports, Ministry of Information, Youth, Culture and Sports, Juliana Yasoda. The new draft is expected to put much focus on the development of women football in the country. For the past few years, TFF and TWFA have been expressing their desire to turn around the country's women football fortunes but such plans have not come to reality so far.
The two bodies are yet to introduce the women's national football league to stimulate sustainable development of the sport. All countries that have excelled in the women football have well-established national leagues.
The national women soccer team Twiga Stars crushed out of the African Women's Championship qualifiers, after suffering a 1-0 home defeat to Ethiopia, at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam last Saturday. The local queens had suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of their Ethiopian counterparts, in the first leg match played in Addis Ababa on May 26, this year.
