Competition is a good thing; it brings out our best

The second Sauti Mtaani socialization event was held on the 7th of November, 2015, at Aqua Gardens on Mirema drive, in Zimmerman. It was another opportunity to bring together the Sauti Mtaani ambassadors from the top performing wards to enhance team spirit, strengthen their relationships and acknowledge their good work with a token of appreciation. This time the leading ward was Mowlem followed by Viwandani and Dandora III. The ambasadors from the three wards received back packs, polo shirts and snap back caps respectively. The moderators from the remaining wards received wrist bands, commonly known as a “shambala”. It was clear that healthy competition was encouraging the teams to make Sauti Mtaani a household name in their respective wards. The event included fun games, music and food. An introductory game, “How well do you know your team” was a fun way of getting to know each other as did other physical games; plate race, balloon battles and no hand get up. Other games aimed at enhancing team spirit, communication skills, strategizing capabilities and mental preparedness for handling different situations. Just like the previous one, it was evident that the socialization event was a very effective incentive for the youth to engage with their MCAs through Sauti Mtaani.
