The Ngonis are this year’s Champions in the nt after they defeated their traditional cousins, the Bemba speaking people in the annual sporting event.

The tournament was held at Chipata Golf Coast, which is the oldest Golf Coast in Zambia and second oldest in Africa.Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo said the annual Golf tournament helps promote unity among Zambians.

Kasolo as guest of honour at the event stated that it hurts when some people talk ill of other tribes stressing that all the people are one regardless of which tribe they hail from, hence the need for the promotion of coexistence among all tribes in the country.

“ This is evident with the tournament although it is dubbed the Ngoni and Bemba Golf Tournament, it does not segregate other tribes, “ he said.

The tournament which was played on Sunday saw the two sides winning various awards in different individual categories where the Ngonis
emerged as overall winners.

Overall , the Bembas’ amassed 336 points against their traditional cousins’ 316 in the men’s category while in the ladies category the Ngonis got 194 points against the Bembas’ 164 points.

The individual champion was scooped by Christian Kombe from the Bembas’ side who got 42 points.

The tournament was also spiced by other golfers who were not either Ngoni or Bemba and were provided with Ngoni traditional head gear
popularly known as Vishutu in the Ngoni language as token of appreciation for their participation in the tournament.

Meanwhile, Chipata Golf Club president Charles Ntinda urged the golfers to consider assisting the vulnerable in society. Ntinda stated that there was need for those that are privileged to assist those that are poor to bridge the gap.

And Kasama Golf Club President Peter Sinkombe said his team was humbled with the hospitality it received in Eastern Province. MTN and Zambia National Commercial Bank (ZANACO) were the sponsors of the tournament.

    • And your Edgar said NO more tribes.
      Why we’re these Ngonis and Bembas not arrested for tribalism?

      Are you sure this golf course still exists? Last time I was there they started encroaching the land in kalongwezi by putting up houses in early year 2000 to 2005. I lived in Kalongwezi in 1989 to 1991 and then moved to Kapata for about a year before going to Lsk. I tell you people I love Chipata, I just don’t know why but this place is always in my heart. I LOVE CHIPATA. Just the hills around the city makes me so happy even if I look at pictures on internet. Chipata is a great city.

    • If other tribes participanted in helping the ngonis, then the headline should have read the alliance forces defeat Bembas in the golf tournament. Guess it easy to cheat what tribe you are in Zambia, the simply told the alliance partners to put on animal skins voila the bembas fail for it and lost, reminds me of the baseball match between chevez and fidel castro, both were supposed to come up with teams made up of their ministers, what castro did was dress up a professional baseball team in beards and dye their hair white like old politicians, thats how chevez lost a friendly baseball match to castro.

  4. Guys mulebako dynamic. This is the 21st century you cant still be wearing the same skins you wore in the 1800s. That is being too static. You must improve on the design. Make the skins appealing to young minds so we can adapt them into modern day fashion

  5. The Zambian tribes have embraced and enjoyed decades of tribal cousinship. Why should some bloggers post discriminatory, silly, unwarranted and degradable posts about this particular one? You don’t know that such action have discouraged the same tribes from. !!!!!!!!! You.
