SWING: Toyota's ambassador Dennis Awori follows his tee shot during a past event. He will among the players to watch at the Parapet Golf Day on Friday.


The par 71 Muthaiga Golf Club will on Friday host one of the hottest annual corporate golf days of the season, the Parapet Golf Tournament. Now in its 5th year, the Parapet Golf Day has continued to attract a who-is-who guest list; this edition is no different.

According to Alex Nyaga, the Parapet CEO, this year’s golf edition will have a few special attractions. “Our golf days are famous for not only offering a superior corporate golf day, they are also well known for introducing twists that we believe go a long way in developing golf in Kenya,” Nyaga said. “This year, we have invited Rose Naliaka, the only female professional golfer in the region and also the current director of programs at the Rose NaliakaGolf Academy, an institution that teaches golf to children from economically challenged backgrounds. At Parapet we are proud to be associated with this great initiative that has dedicated itself to nurturing golf talent.”

Naliaka will be joined at the Parapet Golf Day by Naomi Wafula, a member of the Kenya Ladies Golf Team and a top junior golfer in Africa. “At only 14-years of age, Wafula is an inspiration! She recently participated at the All Africa Challenge Trophy in Botswana and she plays off an impressive handicap of five,” Nyaga added.

Corporate Captains who will be joining Rose Naliaka and Naomi Wafula at Muthaiga include Chase Bank’s Duncan Kabui, Toyota’s Ambassador Dennis Awori, Tyson CEO Barth Ragalo, IMG’s Betty Gacheru, Kenya Pipeline’s Seleste Kilinda, Multichoice CEO Danny Mucira, environmentalist Dr. Isaac Kalua, BAT’s Lawrence Kiambi, Serena’s Jan Mohammud and Deloitte’s Sammy Onyango. The Muthaiga Golf Club Chairman, Dr. Macharia Irungu will welcome his Karen Country Club Chairman, Jinaro Kibet, at the same event.

With the Muthaiga Golf Club playing long due to the wet weather conditions, scores at the Parapet Golf Day are expected to be low. “I am told the greens are in top class condition and that the golf course is in pristine condition,” Nyaga added. “I reckon our guests will have an excellent afternoon on the golf course. air max 90 air max 90
