HIBISCUS Coast Municipality mayor Cllr Nomusa Mqwebu officially sent off two Hibiscus Coast SAPS chess players who will represent South Africa and KZN at the ninth Southern African Regional Police Chiefs Corporation Organisation (SARPCCO) games in Swaziland which start on 22 July and runs until 2 August.

The mayor said she is proud that out of the six chess players who will represent South Africa, two are from her municipality.

“I wish them well as they approach this competition - they are Hibiscus Coast embassadors.”

The mayor urged them to return with medals and a trophy.

Port Shepstone SAPS officer Daleen Meyer said she is excited to be part of the group and the only woman.

“It is so exciting for me - its a milestone. We will be playing against other countries and it makes me proud as I am the only woman,” she said.

Hopewell Ntunzela (Gamalakhe SAPS) said it has always been a dream to be part of this competition as its his first time.

“It has always been my dream, I am more than ready to take on this challenge,” said Ntunzela.

The players are part of the recently formed Hibiscus Coast Chess Confederation.

Bheki Msomi, chair of the confederation, said he is proud of them and knows they will represent them well
