DEPARTMENT of Correctional Services employee, Mncedisi Mbola, is preparing for the national golf championships in Port Shepstone, hosted by the department, from November 19 to 24.

Mbola is the only employee chosen to represent the Department of Correctional Service Kokstad Management Area.

Mbola says he started playing golf at the age of 17 when he joined Kokstad Golf Club.

“Some of my friends are in jail for various crimes and I thank coaches who motivated me to keep playing golf not to do crime. I am happy to be chosen for the national championships,” said Mbola.

He has also participated in the Department of Correctional Services trials with other employees.

In the championships 164 employees from Correctional Services throughout the country will participate, 18 of whom are from KwaZulu-Natal.

Bonginkosi Mbotshwa, the Department of Correctional Service communication officer congratulated Mbola and wished him well.
