I'm Luyanda Ngwenda. I studied Internal Auditing at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and am unemployed. I'm passionate about changing people's lives for the better hence it was easy for me to help Lubabalo because I think the game of Draughts can be applied as a metaphor for life, i.e. one good move pushes one to a win, one bad move could push one to destruction, in reality and on the Draughts board. We live in a society with plethora of underdevelopment, poverty and disease. Draughts can be used as tool to fight these ills… and of course create more world champs like Lubabalo.

Hope I answered you, Sir!

    I am trying to get in touch with Lubabalo Kondlo. I would like to hire him as an ambassador of the draughts competition that is scheduled to run in the Eastern Cape. Please contact me on 0766421071

    I am a draughts player who would like to know who is the best between Kondlo and Mazibuko. I know Kondlo has played in a world stage but some people claim Mazibuko ( also from Port Elizabeth) is the best.
