Georgetown, Guyana - After serving in the public service for a whopping 34 years, sport enthusiast James Lewis will be honoured on Sunday when the Home Affairs Ministry stages an Inter-ministry 10/10 knockout tapeball competition on the National Cultural Centre tarmac.

Lewis, who will officially proceed on retirement on April 30, said a highly competitive day of cricket is anticipated among the eight ministry teams confirmed to do battle from 10:00h.

The ministries set to vie for supremacy are Home Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Sport, Legal Affairs, Health, Finance, Public Service and Housing and Water.

“The teams are pumped up and ready to go at each other, so we expect some keenly contested matches,” Lewis promised.

The long-serving public servant was on hand on Wednesday afternoon to collect the winner’s trophy from Ovid Glasgow of the Home Affairs Ministry, which has agreed to sponsor the first-place prize.

Lewis thanked Minister Clement Rohee and his ministry for being part of the activity, noting that the Public Service and Local Government ministries have also promised to assist by providing additional trophies and medals.

“I want to take this opportunity to encourage persons to come out and witness an exciting day of cricket and have a fun time with the family,” Lewis said.
