He further echoed how the championship will serve as an arena for players to display their prowess where the best players will be selected to boost the current Ulinzi team and get an opportunity to represent the country in the ongoing national league and tournaments sponsored by the Ministry of Defence.
CDF Bora Cup challenge returns after suspension due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The next championship is slotted to take place later in April at the same venue.
