THE Zimbabwe Netball team, the Gems, have come fourth at the Africa Netball Cup which ends in South Africa today.

In their last match, the Gems fell 71-46 to Malawi.

Before Tuesday’s game, they had wins against Kenya, Lesotho and Zambia and a loss to South Africa.

The dark chapter of the tournament was when they suffered a walkover after arriving late for the Uganda game.

Although Uganda was always going to be too strong for the rising southern African team, funding challenges and administrative shortcomings have also contributed to the challenges faced by the Gems.
