‘’This matter came to the ministry and I can tell you that the plans are on track, they have been given the concurrence by both their parent ministries, the ministry of health and the ministry of sports arts and culture, of course, provided that they stick to the protocols that have been provided for opening up of sports of such nature….I think fans can look forward to that encounter’’, Dr Rashid remarked
