ABSA Bank Tanzania said it has fully sponsored local golf celebrity, Victor Mbunda,  on his mission as Tanzania’s flag-bearer in the coming Kenya Open Championship.

Speaking in Dar es Salaam yesterday, Absa Bank Tanzania Managing Director, Abdi Mohamed, said the bank was happy with Mbunda’s ambition, giving rise to the decision to support him.

“We always aim to bring possibilities into life and, knowing that Mbunda is the current number one golfer in Tanzania, it is our willingness to be part of his success story by facilitating him into this tournament,” said Mohamed.

He said the bank was always proud to be associated with sports so as to inspire Tanzanian youth, as Mbunda does, into showing they were capable to brush shoulders with world-class sportsmen.

Kenya Open is an annual golf tournament founded in 1967. It has been an event on Europe-based Challenge Tour schedule since 1991, before being affix onto the European Tour in 2019.

The tourney’s past champions include Seve Ballesteros, Ian Woosnam, Ken Brown, Christy O’Connor Jr and Trevor Immelman.

“Mbunda is a symbol of ambitions. We, Absa Bank Tanzania respect the ambitions of our customers as well as those of our nation at large. As a way of putting in action the noble aim of our ‘Africanacity’ maxim, we feel obliged to give Mbunda support, and we believe he won’t let us down,” said Mohamed.

Earlier, Absa Tanzania Head of Marketing and Corporate Relations Aron Luhanga, said Mbunda would be fully sponsored.

“We provide a return ticket to Nairobi, allowances as well as golf gears,” he said.

Luhanga urged Tanzanians to play down the misguided notion that golf was reserved for the affluent, saying it was like any other sports and was open to people from all walks of life, whether driven by the urge to keep fit or are out to make money.

Mbunda, flanked by veteran golfers Martin Warioba and Marian Mugo, thanked Absa Bank Tanzania for giving him a helping hand, and promised not to let them down.

“I am willing to be brand ambassador for Absa Bank Tanzania in the tourney as well as in other future golf   contests. You have showed the way,” he said.

The four-day regional classic is scheduled to take off at the Karen Country Club in Nairobi, Kenya on date to be disclosed soon.
