Lurdes Mutola: A lesson on sacrifice in the first person - Mozambique
A Bola (File photo) / ON February 2016, the front wall of the Zimpeto Olympic pool collapsed, killing national swimming team coach Frederico dos Santos and injuring ten others
Adamo Bacar has been removed as director general of the Sports Promotion Fund (FPD) and replaced by Hélio Sarmento, a senior official at the Ministry of Youth and Sports.
A recent visit by President Filipe Nyusi to the Zimpeto swimming pool, where he was very critical of the state of the facility, could be behind Bacar’s departure of Adamo. The FPD is responsible for the management of the Zimpeto pool.
Bacar had been in his post two years, during which time it was demanded that the institution rehabilitate the Parque dos Continadores in Maputo, which was accomplished. Also during his tenure, the green light was given for sports complexes in Pemba and Gondola, still under construction.Source: A Bola
