    Founders of the France based soccer academy, Diambars, are planning to open one branch in Tanzania, according to its officials. The academy was established by former France ace players Bernard Lama and Jimmy Adjovi, and have managed to open sister branches in Senegal and South Africa.

    Lama, who played for the French national team in the 1990s and Adjovi-Boko who was a key figure at RC Lens, have their origins in Senegal. Briefing reporters yesterday in Dar Es Salaam, Boko said apart from imparting soccer skills to youngsters, their academy will offer ordinary education to talented players.

    Boko disclosed that they had already discussed the matter with the Tanzania’s Ministry of Information, Culture and Sports, and the government promised to approve without much delay.

    Lama, who once coached Kenya's Harambee Stars and Inter Milan player, Patrick Vieira are important stakeholders of the project. The Diambars' tour coordinator, Rahim Kangezi said as soon as the government approves it, the academy would be opened.

    "We are still waiting for the government's response and also they plan to bring Arsenal defender William Gallas to share his views," he told The Citizen.

    Diambars is a Senegalese word for the fighters, which the academy borrowed to address the plight of African football stars who seek fame and fortune at the expense of education.

    The first academy was built in Senegal with the help of some French professional footballers and legends.

    Wizarani mijitu huko inatafuta loophole ya rushwa ndo maana wanasitasita, watu km hawa muhimu sana, wangechangamkiwa hawa tena wakija wakimaliza mambo yao wapelekeni na mbugani na kukwea kilimanjaro waitangaze bongo, nchii hii inavipaji vya soka balaa ila vinapotelea hewani hakuna wa kuvilea na kuvikuza, tumejaa maneno tu vitendo hakuna.
