To do this we can use sports, and sports is a very economic development aspect, although people don’t know it, it is a unifying factor and a peaceful factor that can help unite the people and bring them to one understand of the society and you see that when this unity cup was put in place few years ago, after that unity cup there were allot of changes in the attitude of our people, people thought it was necessary to leave together.
