The best wors in SA is from KZN

2012-10-08 00:00

KEEP trying. That finally paid off for Newcastle butcher Mshonseni Nkambule (62), who was crowned SA’s boerewors champion on Saturday, after entering the Shoprite Checkers competition for 19 years.

Nkambule is a butchery manager at Shoprite in Newcastle. “The competition is open to anyone, as long as you know what you are doing. But you have to be patient, you can’t race to win,” he said.

Nkambule beat nine other contestants in the final that was held at Sun City. He has entered the contest every year since its inception, and this is the first time he has reached the final. He said his winning recipe was his balance between beef and pork, and he also tweaked his spice mixture a little this year.

His prize includes a holiday and cash, but Nkambule was most excited by the brand-new Toyota Hilux double-cab bakkie, which he said he could never have dreamt of owning.

He plans to use it to go on holiday to his favourite place, Swaziland.

Nkambule’s winning wors will be available at Shoprite Checkers stores from this Friday.
