THREE members from Port Shepstone and Margate policing clusters will be travel to Swaziland next week for the ninth Southern African Regional Police Chiefs Games

(SARPCCO) Games.

SARPCCO is an organisation of police forces of all member countries of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

At this platform, police members share ideas on policing and interact with each other through sports.

Warrant Officer Daleen Meyer, stationed at the Local Criminal Record Centre (LCRC) in Port Shepstone, and Sergeant Hopewell Ntunzela from Gamalakhe SAPS will take part in chess.

Meyer’s interest in chess was sparked in 2010 when her son played chess for his high school, since then she has been involved in chess for the KZN provincial SAPS team.

She thanks her mentor, Colonel William Slabbert and her commander, Lieutenant-Colonel Jannie Hills, for believing in her and supporting her.

Ntunzela started his chess career in 1992 in school and then joined the SAPS team in 2011.

He has high praise for Slabbert who always encouraged him, and also Margate cluster commander, Brigadier Morris Moodley for supporting him in this sport.

Sergeant Shaun Felix from LCRC, Port Shepstone, started his volleyball career in 2003 and pays tribute to his success to the late Pastor Vasin Gounden who was instrumental in teaching a youth volleyball team of which Felix was a member.

He started taking part in the SA championships in 2005 and took part in the World Games in 2009.

Port Shepstone cluster commander, Major-General Thembi Ndlovu, congratulated the members for being chosen for the SARPCCO Games and wished them all the best. - Supplied
