Zambia National Commercial Bank Plc (Zanaco) has today, sponsored the 2017 Mopani/Redpath Zambia Golf Open Championship with an amount of US20,000. This was at a handover ceremony held in Kitwe at Nkana Golf Club.

He also added that the Bank viewed the sponsorship as a partnership and not a transaction. “Zanaco will stand by your side. This is not an event whereby we have come on a fly-by-night and we leave. We are not treating this as a transaction but as a partnership. We believe that by this sponsorship, this club, our customers and the nation at large will all benefit,” said Situmbeko.
Speaking at the same event, Zambia Open Organising Committee Chairperson Emmanuel Mutati said Zanaco’s involvement in ensuring that that Zambia Open tournament was a success was an admirable gesture. He also mentioned that the gesture was a great boost in helping the committee to attain their plans regarding the event which is scheduled to take place from 1st to 4th June. “The donation from Zanaco will go a long way in meeting the various logistical needs that come with hosting a tournament of this magnitude,” he added.
Nkana Golf Club Captain Philemon Mwale said that the Organising Committee organising were delighted to have a big contribution from a big, strong and reliable bank like Zanaco and we thank you for joining us on this journey.”
