Tanzanians vow to win title in BotswanaBy IMANI MAKONGORO in Dar es Salaa | Friday, June 1 2012 at 15:20
Tanzania’s national women golf team has vowed to win this year’s All Africa Challenge Trophy in Gaborone.
Skipper Madina Ally told The Citizen newspaperin Dar es Salaam ahead of the team's departure that they were in a much better condition than last year.
The event takes place on June 7.
The Tanzanians finished runners-up in a similar tournament in Nigeria in 2010.
The skipper said the team had been playing well lately, hence their good chance of lifting the title in the Botswana tournament.
The trophy is currently held by South Africa.
The Tanzanians, who left for Gaborone Thursday, were scheduled to make a one day stopover in Johannesburg before travelling by road to Gaborone.
According to the Tanzania Ladies Golf Union (TLGU) secretary-general, Anita Siwale, the tournament was expected to attract 35 countries, but so far only 25 had confirmed participation.
