TUPS unveils COVID-19 kids awareness monument


Tups City Precinct, Marulaneng – TUPS Sport Federation used the lockdown period to deepen its COVID-19 awareness and safety messages by popularising regular washing of hands among Tups players and members of public across communities where the new sporting code is actively played. Tups COVID-19 awareness and hygiene campaign began on 16th April 2020 with the unveiling of a monument constructed at the entrance of Tups City Sport Precinct in Marulaneng. The monument is in the form of a 2.5m high sculpture (figurine) that resemble TUPS Crown shape painted with a yellow background. The handprints decoration was completed by children from Tups kids programme named ‘Little Winning Ways.

According to the Inventor of Tups Sport Mr Puleng Mmotla the Little Winning Ways programme is a nation-wide multifaceted children’s outreach of Tups Sport Federation to help children engage in diverse life skills and safety awareness by using painting, drawing and visual stimulation of the young minds.

“Just before the National COVID-19 Disaster declaration and subsequent lockdown in response to the Corona pandemic our programme for kids visited all three Districts of Mpumalanga Province and undertook six engagements helping multitudes of children to learn diverse life skills through introducing them to our new sport. In full compliance with COVID-19 lockdown regulations we decided to construct a monument at our earmarked site where we have started with construction of our headquarters, the site is aptly named Tups City Sport Precinct” explained Mmotla

“The presence of this monument at Tups City Precinct will propel the Tups messages for personal hygiene among children and future users of the precinct, anc compliment the country’s efforts in the fight against COVID-19. The monument with its colourful handprints will constantly show children and regular traffic the Tups commitment to saving lives. We are using this visual demonstration of handprints as washing of hands has become a focal point for prevention of COVID-19” added Mmotla

The monument is located strategically at the entrance of Tups City Sport Precinct adjacent to D223 road where motorists on the traffic linking different villages with Jane Furse town can clearly see the handprints on the colourful figurine.

“This monument is our humble contribution to COVID-19 and will also help to propel the messages of COVID-19 into the public imagination, showing future athletes and passing traffic a good idea of how Tups Sport can use its standing to promote issues of hygiene and issues that will shape their future”
