Mwana Group Schools Rugby Festival: A Week-Long Celebration of Rugby, Community, and Building a Brighter Sporting Future for Zimbabwe

Nakiso Borehole Drilling, a leading water solutions provider in Zimbabwe, is proud to be a sponsor of the Mwana Group Schools Rugby Festival. This week-long extravaganza promises to be much more than just a competition; it's poised to be a pivotal moment in reigniting Zimbabwe's passion for rugby, unearthing hidden talent, and fostering a vibrant sporting culture for the nation's youth.

A Conversation with Kuda Mutenda: Insights into the Festival's Vision

Kuda Mutenda, CEO of Mwana Group and a Prince Edward alumni himself, offers valuable insights into the festival's goals and its potential impact on Zimbabwean rugby. Here are some key takeaways from the interview:
  1. Rekindling a Legacy: The Mwana Group Schools Rugby Festival aspires to rekindle the nation's enthusiasm for rugby. By showcasing the talent and dedication of young players across the country, the festival aims to inspire a new generation to embrace the sport and carry forward the legacy of Zimbabwean rugby.
  2. A Festival of Grand Proportions: This isn't your average school tournament. With over 120 schools participating, representing a diverse range of institutions from primary to high school levels, universities, and even international teams, the Mwana Group Schools Rugby Festival establishes itself as the biggest of its kind in Africa. This grand scale signifies a serious commitment to making a significant impact on the sport's landscape within the country.
  3. Building for the Future: The Festival isn't a fleeting event; it extends its vision beyond the games themselves. Upgrading facilities at Prince Edward School reflects a focus on long-term development and creating a lasting legacy. These improvements will benefit countless student athletes for years to come.
  4. Collaboration is Key: Mutenda acknowledges the scheduling clash with another tournament and emphasizes the importance of improved communication within the Zimbabwe Rugby Union (ZRU) to prevent future conflicts. This collaborative spirit is essential for ensuring that Zimbabwean rugby flourishes as a united force.

Empowering the Next Generation of Rugby Stars:

A core focus of the festival lies in development and inclusivity. Here's how the Mwana Group Schools Rugby Festival plans to achieve this:
  1. Expanding the Talent Pool: Traditionally, rugby talent scouting may have focused on a limited range of schools. The Mwana Group Schools Rugby Festival actively works to change that. By inviting participation from government institutions, rural schools, and a wider range of backgrounds, the festival aims to identify and nurture talent from a much broader section of Zimbabwe's youth. This inclusivity is crucial for strengthening the overall level of rugby in the country and ensuring a future where exceptional talent isn't overlooked.
  2. Building the Sables of Tomorrow: A unique program will select 50 under-16 players based on a crucial trifecta: character, athleticism, and discipline. These core values are essential for building not just talented players but well-rounded young individuals. The selected players will then be provided with a year-long training and mentorship program, potentially leading them on a path towards representing the national team (Sables) in the future.

Mwana Group's Enduring Commitment:

  1. Five Years Strong: Their sponsorship extends for five years, demonstrating a long-term commitment to supporting the growth and development of Zimbabwean rugby. This sustained backing will provide stability and allow the festival to make a lasting impact.
  2. Elevating Standards: The festival seeks to raise the bar for Zimbabwean school rugby by potentially incorporating international teams in the future. This will expose local players to a higher level of competition, accelerating their development and fostering a culture of continuous improvement within the sport.

The Mwana Group Schools Rugby Festival is more than just a competition; it's a catalyst for change.
