He said: “First and foremost the ministry stands on two legs, youth development and sports.
“I think we are going to see a total reorientation. We are going to have necessary crucial conversation and engagement with all stakeholders when necessary to be able to empower, not just the youths but also to develop sports to bring it at par with global 21st century sport.
“So we go to work from today and it can be done because we have the resources, we have the personnel and we have the expertise.
