Airtel Zambia won the “8 hole” annual HLB Zambia gold day tournament for accountants that was held at Bonanza Golf Estate on Friday 28th June in Lusaka.
Receiving the trophy on behalf of the team was Director of Airtel Money James Chona who was delighted to be a part of the annual event that brought together promising and accomplished professionals in the accountancy trade.
HLB Zambia’s Head of Marketing, Michael Chola, was on hand to give the prizes to the winning team. “The tournament was a huge success and we accomplished what the spirit of the event was all about”, said Michael after the prize giving ceremony. “We wanted to bring together like minded professionals to show our continued commitment to our various partnerships”
Airtel Zambia was one of many sponsoring partners of the golf day that has been the initiative of HLB Zambia as they continue to prop up the image of accountants and the profession in Zambia. The anchor sponsor has held many events over the years which are seen as key events for networking among account professionals who seek an environment that promotes intellectual discourse with a bit of fun.
In a light moment of laughter, one participating accountant who refused to be named said “with this Airtel win, James is definitely buying the next round of drinks at the club bar”.
James who is an alumni of Copperbelt University has held the position of Airtel Director since June 2018. Therefore the win comes near his anniversary in the important role at mobile company which has seen intense competition and innovation in financial inclusion for Zambians. Zamtel who are also among James’ competitors in the mobile money arena, were also sponsors of the golf day.
