Uitenhage Golf Course in Eastern CapeAn amount of R100000 was raised during a fundraising golf tournament held at the Uitenhage Golf Course in the Eastern Cape at the weekend. This was a dream come true for Butityi “BK” Konki, boss of BK Investment Holdings, who was the organiser of the one- day event to celebrate his 50th birthday.

“It has been my wish to stage a development tournament in Uitenhage. I am chuffed about the way things happened and would like to thank all participants who made this day a success.

“ The money that was raised in this tournament will benefit aspirant golfers at school level in the area,” said Konki, who added that the event will be held yearly .

It was the second development tournament sanctioned by Konki after the successful Butityi Konki Schools Rugby Tournament won by Solomon Mahlangu High School last season. Konki’s 50th birthday celebrations ended with a glittering function at the Barkly Theatre in Uitenhage on Saturday.

Prominent people who attended the tournament included former Springbok manager Zola Yeye and former Uitenhage Springboks Morgan Cushe and Vusunzi Nakani. Others were Eastern Cape MEC for sports, arts and culture Noxolo-Abraham Ntatiso and boxing legends Philip Ndou, Dingaan Thobela and Welcome Ncita.

    I would love to know what kind of person is Butityi Konki… He stole my money i could say not mine alone

  2. Ramon Thomas says:

    Ali what are you talking about? Send me a email through the contact page and I’ll publish it like a “letter to do the editor…”

    There is a lot of talks like the one made by Ali. I wish people would come forward with evidence of course! It’s irresponsible for someone to say someone did this or that and leave it at that. I also challenge Ali to send that e-mail. Im not saying Mr Konki is not guilty of anything or is. Its just that I dont go with unsubstantiated statements.
