For three consecutive years, United Nations staff based in Zimbabwe have been the reigning champions at the All Africa UN Games.
The All Africa UN Games are held each year in any of the African countries. Mozambique will host the 2019 games; Lesotho hosted them last year. This year three UN resident coordinators attended the games, including the Resident Coordinator for Angola, Pier Paolo Balladelli, Resident Coordinator in Zimbabwe, Bishow Parajuli and the host country UN Resident Coordinator, Nardos Bekele-Thomas.
The games brought together hundreds of UN staff from across Africa who competed in 12 sports disciplines ranging from, among others, soccer and netball to golf, swimming, tennis, darts, snooker, and chess and other fun games such as sack races and tugs-of-war.
