KUCHING, June 25: Kapit’s dilapidated indoor stadium is in dire need of repair.

In saying this, Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) deputy information chief Andy Lawrance pointed out that there is also limited space for schools to organise sports competitions due to the closure of the indoor stadium for many years.

“There are no other sports facilities in Kapit for our youth to gather and organise activities such as badminton, netball, basketball, futsal, and many others. The indoor stadium is not only for our youth but for the entire community as well.

“I believe it is time for the Sarawak Sports Corporation to look into this problem urgently. The Kapit community deserves better,” he said in a statement today.

Meanwhile, Andy also expressed his gratitude to the Sarawak government and Minister of Youth, Sports, and Entrepreneur Development Sarawak Dato Sri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah for choosing Kapit as the venue to celebrate the State-level National Youth Day 2023 from Oct 26 to 28.

“We understand that the celebration will be downsized due to constraints that Kapit may have, especially regarding accommodation and limited facilities,” he said. — DayakDaily
