Veteran golfer John Magombo beat 51 other golfers to win the 2016 Nchalo invitational golf competition sponsored by Bollore Africa Logistics Malawi Limited. Playing under handicap 21, Magombo amassed 43 points having scored 24 from the front and 19 from the back to claim the top prize.
Speaking after receiving the top prize from the sponsors, Magombo said he felt good to have won the competition which attracted several senior and junior golfers from Blantyre and Lilongwe.
“I feel good to have won the competition. I was drawn with nice guys coming from Blantyre and Nchalo who gave me a tough ride and that’s what propelled me. Credit should also go to Management of Nchalo golf club for keeping the greens good such that it was very easy to hit the ball. Imagine runner up is on 36 points which tells you how good I was on the day,” said Magombo.
In his remarks, outgoing Managing Director (MD) for Bollore Africa Logistics Malawi Limited Roderick Phiri said the competition gives them platform to interact with their customers while having fun with them.
During the prize presentation ceremony, Phiri also took time to introduce the new MD and Financial Director for the company who are set to be officially introduced later next month.
“Let me take this opportunity to announce that our company changes name to become Bollore Transport and Logistics Malawi Limited and the new name comes with new management as well. Am about to end my stay with the company and the company will have a new MD and Finance Director. The new MD is Phillipe Niamkey and the new Financial Director is Maciej Wilsgosz.
