ZIMBABWE Ladies Golf Union outgoing president Caroline Mtsambiwa has wished well the incoming executive which will be selected this afternoon at their annual meeting at Royal Harare.
Mtsambiwa will not seek re-election after serving her two-year term and said she is happy for her achievements.
“I am happy to be leaving the post. We managed to move mountains with my executive and we hope to see the sport going forward. After I took over from Ionka Bekker, we managed to continue well and succeeded.
