Mgebe Securities has responded to the clarion call to support sports in Khayelitsha by sponsoring a rugby tournament in the area.

Headed by Sithembiso Mntengwana, the leading security firm will launch an annual schools rugby tournament at Khayelitsha Stadium on Friday morning.

“We receive a lot of funding proposals, but since we believe in youth empowerment, we felt we must work with the schools through sport,” said Mntengwana.

The tournament will feature primary schools. Khayelitsha Sports Council (KSC) secretary Rhorho Mnyamana said they were thrilled when Mgebe Securities approached them with the idea.

“We have long asked local business people to play their part and Mgebe Securities answered that call and we appreciate that,” said Mnyamana.

Mnyamana said KSC will be vocal in the coming year when addressing businesses in the township.

“We won’t force them but they must know they have a serious role to play in supporting the games,” said the bearded one.
