It seems she has gained a lot of experience by competing in the African top chess event (in pic- the 2018 African Championship) in Livingstone Zambia a couple of months back where she scored a good 4.5pts out of 9, and not bad for a ‘rookie’ in that event.
2018 Zim Women Chess Championship at Causeway POSB Harare. In pic Ladies heavyweights Tatenda Zengeni and Kudzanayi Charinda in a bruising battle on board 2 in the 9th and last round. The game ended peacefully sharing the point.. This means Kudzanayi came joint 2nd with Linda Shaba on 7pts out of 9. This means the Winner of the 2018 Zim Ladies Championship is the splendid performer and greatly improved Christine Makwena who played the best games of her life in this Ladies top event of 2018. She didn’t lose any game as she collected a brilliant 8pts! She drew Kudzanayi and Tatenda in the 6th and 8th rounds respectively…Well played Makwena!
