THE 2017 Omar Latiff Memorial Golf tourney winners are determined to return next year to defend their title.

Londa Mngadi and Ntokozo Vilakazi were announced the overall winners of the tournament that was held for the second time at the Victoria Country Club on Sunday, in memory of the late Omar Latiff, a former mayor of Msunduzi Municipality. Mngani said it was the first time he had entered the tournament.

“We are excited that we won playing in it for the first time and we are looking forward to coming back next year and defending our title.

“We are also excited to be part of the tournament because Omar Latiff was someone who contributed positively to people’s lives and in
Pietermaritzburg since he was the mayor,” he said.

“Golf is our life; we started playing it a long time ago. We always play at this golf club and I think that worked in our favour,” said Vilakazi.

Mngadi said it is not the only tournament they have played in. They have also played in the Community Chest tournament and will be playing in the BMW tournament this month.

Latiff’s wife Roshan said that as a family they are happy with the success of the tournament and hope that next year it will grow so they can raise more funds to assist children with education because her husband had a passion for education.
