KK Impresses Golfers At Status Hi-Tech Tourney

LUSAKA, May 4 - Despite his advanced age, Zambia's first Republican president Dr. Kaunda impressed golfers at the Status Hi-Tech invitational tournament held at the magnificent Nchanga Golf Club on Sunday.

Dr. Kaunda scored 24 points after the more than six hours tournament that attracted more than 80 golfers.

He completed all 18 holes but still remained energetic and strong. The lowest score was nine points while the highest, of 89 overs, was 38 points.

Dr. Kaunda played four ball together with Safety Hi-Tech chairman John Zgambo, Mopani chief executive Tim Henderson and Konkola Copper Mines chief executive Jordan Soko.

"He played very well especially the back nine. He scored 24 points," said Zgambo after the tournament..

"He is a very strong man and he finished all the 18 holes. Imagine, he was playing using a new kit and yet finished well."

Zgambo wondered how Dr. Kaunda despite his age should play better golf than most of the younger generation that participated in the tournament.

As a company marketing strategy, Zgambo said they thought of using the tournament to celebrate Dr. Kaunda's birthday in Chongola.

The tournament was held under the theme golf for safety.

"Golf for safety highlights safety in the work place. We hope the tournament has rekindled hope to protect the most important resource; labour," said Zgambo.
