The Computech-sponsored Stroke Play tournament attracted a total of 81 golfers including guests from Uganda, Burundi and Zambia.

Former Kigali Golf Club captain, Olwit carded the best score of 71 Net in the men handicap 0-9 category, beating Maharshi Rawal and Barnabas Kariuki, who each scored 74 Net.

“I am very excited to win this competition, I was not really expecting this before the start, I’m happy to have won because I love this game,” said Olwit.
