Says not aligned with his personal belief : Faiser Mustapha bans alcohol sales at sports hotel

Sports Minister Faiszer Mustapha has banned the sale of alcohol at the newly renovated Sugathadasa Sports Hotel.

“I took a decision to stop the sale of alcohol at the Sugathadasa Sports Hotel simply because so many of our young ones patronize this stadium. I believe that it does not relate well with our nation’s culture and values and clearly is not aligned with my personal belief”, Minister Mustapha said in a statement. “The facility has been under refurbishment over the last couple of years. And one of the highlights established was a full-fledged bar.

This clearly does not resonate with the country’s ethos of empowering and energizing our youth, especially through sports. The Sugathadasa arena is currently patronized by our young future athletes, swimmers, gymnasts and other sports. The credo for the Sugathadasa Sports Hotel was to provide dwelling for our youth from all across the island”.
