In order to help the association, Cham believes that a proper structure should be put in place to ensure the successful running of the association.

As part of the sports activities set for the forthcoming July 22nd, Alieu Cham told Pointsport that the handball association is exempted from the event until a proper executive is selected to run the affairs of the association.
