The 42-year-old won the race in three hours 3 hours 08 minutes 10 seconds.
The veteran Zimbabwean runner walked away with R50 000, a floating trophy and the majestic and royal winners’ handshake from His Majesty King Mswati III at the prize giving ceremony held at Somhlolo National Stadium.
“For a slower runner like me the route is not as bad but for a fast runner, it could have an effect on the muscles.
“It was endurance that kept me going and I’m happy with my performance,” she said.
Meanwhile, His Majesty King Mswati III has declared that the winner of next year’s edition of the Imbube Marathon will walk away with over 100 000 rand.
