Former Black Aces Striker Lineker Mwiikisa on the Road to Recovery in South Africa
Bedfordview, South Africa – Lineker Mwiikisa, the former Black Aces striker and the 2015 Costa Do Sol Golden Boot winner, is making impressive strides in his recovery journey following ACL surgery. Currently receiving treatment at Linksfield Netcare Hospital in Bedfordview, South Africa, Mwiikisa is well on his way to rehabilitation.
