The first edition of the Dr. David Makongo BONAVADA Youth Tournament came to an end on Saturday August 31, 2013, at the Bokova Community field in grand style. The heavily attended finals ended up with Wonya Moka FC of Bokova beating Bwiteva FC 2 -1 to lift the trophy during regular play time in the men’s category.
Bokwai FC also beat Bonakanda United 4-3 after post match penalty to lift the female trophy.
Apart from numerous awards donated during the closing ceremony of the tournament, what took people’s attention most was the announcement by the junior brother of Dr. Makongo, Armstrong Masoma, his brother’s declaration to support two orphans through their university education.
These two brothers,…….had passed their GCE Advanced Level but lacked the financial support to continue their education in the university. They had lost both parents and struggled to sponsor themselves through secondary education. Mola Masoma announced that his brother’s commitment in supporting the education of the youths is one of many projects Dr. David Makongo has in the pipeline for the community.
