She said the competition, which was part of the country's 50th anniversary celebrations served as a platform to inform its customers about their latest product, which is the vehicle and asset finance product (Flexi-lease, flexi-rent and flexi-loan)
Mrs. Mwanakatwe thanked the golfers for honouring the invitation and congratulated the winners and promised her outfit's continued assistance to the club.
