From  James Lanka, Moshi


At least 40football coaches from different parts of Kilimanjaro region last month participated in a coaching course organized and sponsored by the Mkombozi Vocational Training and Community Development Center
(MVTCDC) located in Pasua area, outskirts of Moshi Municipality.

Speaking in an exclusive interviews during the course recently at MVTCDC the Coordinator of the course Mr. Japhet Mpande who is also the Chairman of the Moshi Municipal Football Association (MMFA) explained that the training, among many other things, aims at producing professional football coaches and referees in the region.

According to Mr. Mpande, most of the football coaches and referees in Kilimanjaro region are not ‘professionally’ trained and that is why MVTCDC in collaboration with other stakeholders decided to introduce a football coaching course to be followed by a referees course.

“I hope that, after this course, Kilimanjaro region will have enough professional coaches and referees who will be used to train various football clubs within and outside the region,” he pointed out.

The course session started on 20th August this year to 2nd of September under the facilitation of the the Tanzania Football Coaches Association (TAFCA).

One of the participants, a woman coach from Moshi Technical College Ms. Anna Mhando said she was
expecting to form a regional women soccer club in Kilimanjaro region.
