The Malawi under 21 national netball team has left for Botswana ahead of the Africa qualifying games after receiving a boost from Airtel Malawi.
The participation of the Junior Queens at the tournament was hanging in limbo due to unavailability of funds. However, the cloud of uncertainities disappeared as the mobile money entity donated MK10 million to the Junior Queens.
The Junior Queens left through Chileka international airport in Blantyre.
In an interview with Nyasa Times before departure, Coach Mary Waya said she has assembled a winning team for the qualifying games in Botswana.
“We are in good shape for the Africa qualifying games. We have been in camp for two weeks and the girls have easily adapted to our expectations and hope they will deliver,” said the former Queens international.
Captain Mervis Kayange said Malawians should expect good results from Botswana.
“We are travelling like a team and that’s a key factor on our side. We have done a lot of ground work with Coach Mary Waya and what we need ow is to implement what we have been doing,” said Kayange.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
