Dar golfers embark on Malawian mission

ALL is set as Tanzania People’s Defence Forces (TPDF) has confirmed to send a golf team to Malawi after receiving an invitation from Malawi Defence Force’s General Vincent Nundwa.

General Nundwa, who was in Dar es Salaam over the weekend to compete in the just ended CDF Trophy golf tournament, invited the TPDF Lugalo club to compete in the Malawian event to be staged in Lilongwe next month.

The Chief of Defence Forces, General Jacob Mkunda confirmed to send the Lugalo team to Malawi whose golf tournament will tee off in November this year.

“We are grateful to Malawi and General Nundwa, we understand he has a huge responsibility in Malawi, yet he managed to come and play in the CDF Trophy, this shows how he honours our long-standing relationship, I have promised him to send Lugalo team to Malawi in November.”

Mkunda added that the presence of Nundwa and the four Malawian generals and nine golfers at the CDF Trophy heighten the tournament’s status.

“Sadly, I won’t be part of the team, but I promise him next time, I and more than four generals will also be in the team,” he stressed.

Mkunda complimented General (rtd) George Waitara for his brilliant idea to construct the golf course which has become one of the important platforms for the growth of the game in the country.

He said golf is one of the fast growing sports and he appealed to companies, institutions and sports well-wishers to continue supporting the development of golf.

Adding, the CDF said Lugalo has been doing a wonderful job, especially in junior golf development which is the future of the game.

General Nundwa also thanked General Mkunda for inviting them and he is delighted by a humble and wonderful welcome.

He said Lugalo has organised a wonderful event and maybe they will try to do the same in Malawi.

“I want to encourage those who are yet to start playing golf to start now since golf is something that helps you maintain good health,” he said.

Nundwa has invited local golfers and welcome Tanzania sponsors to cross the border too and do the same in Malawi.
