“This tournament is very important because it is a Zone VI qualifier.
We are not going to take anything for granted. We have been doing well this season and mathematically we have won the league,” he said. Tracy Chaba, Karabo Molefa and Daisy Golekanye are some of the players expected to lead Kutlwano to glory.
