Delineating structural and ethical shades of sports administration in Zimbabwe: a case Study of Mashonaland Central's rural schools.
MetadataShow full item record
In this article I investigate the role of sports administration in the development of talent in rural Zimbabwe and the ethical challenges therein. I defend the thesis that sports administration is a key component of sport development in any country as sport is a source of livelihood for many people in both developing and developed economies. Sport also unifies people by breaking social (artificial) barriers caused by race, gender ethnicity and class which continue to divide people especially in contemporary Africa. This topic is important in that it advances new knowledge about the nature of sport administration among disadvantaged groups in third world countries. I concentrate on football and athletics as these appear to me, to be easier to administer especially in poor rural areas and I chose Mashonaland Central Province as a case study based on my personal experiences as a former high school teacher and sports master in the province.
