‘Kirsty Coventry Is Out Of Her Depth’ – Temba Mliswa Attacks Ministera



Fiery member of parliament (MP) for Norton Temba Mliswa ( Independent) has launched a broadside at Minister of Sports Arts Recreation and Youths, Kirsty Coventry describing her as being hopelessly out of her depth. According to Mliswa, this shows that great athletes do not necessarily become great administrators.

Mliswa’s attacks at a time when the Zimbabwe Rugby 7s team had to rely on well-wishers and rugby fans who fundraised US$5 800 after the team arrived in Hong Kong with no money for meals. Reports also say that the team did not even have rugby boots.

Writing on Twitter, Mliswa said,

Sports Minister @KirstyCoventry is increasingly revealing her being out of depth as Sports Minister by how she is and has dealt with problems in rugby, soccer and cricket. Being a super athlete is no signal of being a great administrator.

I have in-depth knowledge of the rugby community in Zimbabwe having previously worked in the sector with individuals

such as a Brendan Dawson, Kennedy Tsimba, Tonderai Chivhanga etc. The rot that has set in can provisionally be dealt with by first having a forensic audit done.

They were individuals like Dave Morgan whose passion for the sport you could never doubt. Now Kirsty is using her position simply as a status issue. She doesn’t want to dirty herself fighting the ills in the sporting sector but you don’t make any headway like that.

This country has some devoted sports loving people such as Gerald Mlotshwa and @maguranyanga who have supported the rugby fraternity extensively its painful watching someone destroying the sector by acting naively and weakly.

Even the youth side @KirstyCoventry you haven’t really stood up. You cannot exist above the rot but have to come down and deal with it. In most of these sporting sectors, the medicine is an audit in soccer, cricket and rugby.
