Powered up by star shooter Mwayi Kumwenda goal attacker Sindi ‘Snipper’ Simutowe and Wing Attacker Bridget Kumwenda, the Queens led Uganda’s She Cranes at the end of quarter one, a by 19-10.

Uganda played catch up for a long spell with goal shooter, Peace Proscovia top scoring with 8 goals as Goal Attack, Rachael Nanyonga managed 2.

A tactical change by the She Cranes head coach, Rashid Mubiru saw Alice Nanteza start ahead of Florence Nanyonga at GK but it still remained an issue of limiting the damage as Malawi opened a 13 goal advantage (35-22) with Kumwenda dominating the baskets.

Uganda managed to keep pace with the 6th-ranked Malawi Queens for much of the game, with the third quarter coming close as Malawi led 15-14.

The last quarter Uganda scored better than Malawi 9-17 but could it was too late to upset the tables.

Kumwenda  dipped 48 of her 53 tries while Simutowe’s had 11 out of the 13 attempts.

It was another sweet victory for the Queens with good combination of play by Thandie Galeta, Grace Mwafulirwa, Carorl Mtukule and Towera Vinkhumbo.

Malawi play world giants New Zealand on Wednesday. Their last match in this round is against fourth-ranked Jamaica on Friday.

The top two teams in this pool will move on to the semi-finals. To determine who will progress, all the four teams will play a round robin format – meaning, each side will play all the other three opponents.

It’s not going to get tougher but the Queens are equal for the challenge.

    That’s just awesome…

  40. R. M says:

    Go go go go we are behind u Queens all the way!

  41. Mlauzi says:

    Congrats ladies. You are really unstoppable.

    My advice to government is that they should offer scholarships to these ladies, sports medicine for instance. I understand COM will shortly start offering the course. Again these ladies need to be supported. Why do we spend more on a losing brand (i.e. the Flames at the expense of a winning brand – the Queens?). Again let`s consider offering employment to the Queens in the public as well as private sectors. We need to empower these ladies, sports is generally a career with a short shelf life.

  42. nyavizwazwa says:


    Vileke we vibanthu vyambula mahala, with only big mouths, they make alot of senseless noise.

    At the battle there is no tumbuka, lowe, chewa what so ever but we all stand for Malawi our belowed country to put it on the map that we are also able to do some miracle in some other activities. Not that Malawi should always be a failed country. No.

    They talked about Kinna, now they want to recall him back. If the players themselves have lost commitment, whether you call Tedie Powel, nothing will happen. because the one who plays is not the coach but players, the coach only given techniques.

  43. obwande says:

    Don’t be afraid of Newsland and Jamaica you are better than them. Keep it up my Queens you are a good side.

  44. muno mu Malawi tonse tiyeni tiyisapote queens osati zoluzazi

  45. wamuchalo says:

    Tukwana, uja umakonda kutukwana a TUMBUKA uja!

  46. philli banda says:

    The Queens deserve the best sponsorship and good package rather than the Frames. I support you.

  47. Phwaks says:

    Keep it up dear girls. We emotionally support you.

  48. Still believe in Uganda She Cranes!!!

    Just fight- on girls!!!

  49. opportunist says:

  50. Richard Mtseka says:

    Big up ma queens mumakwana

  51. sheed says:

    mukuchita bwino kuposa first gentle man. Big thumb!!!

  52. Martin Chitiya says:

    Work harder ladies.Eat alot of pizza and chips and get extra nyonga

  53. Nosisye says:

    Why are you congratulating the Queens now? Is this not the squad which is comprised of 95% the ones you have dubbed atumbukas?Why is the so much anti northerners rhetoric not appearing at this juncture? You will see when the Queens will just loose a game all the comments will be anti northerners. What does this mean? Frankly speaking there is no country in the world which is so backward thinking like Malawi.

  54. syamboza says:

    congrats guys kono mchipita chomwechi chikutinyasa kaya 2019 ndiliti????????????????????????????????/

    My my my, my Malawi Queens @ it again.This team right here is overlooked by government, yet through out history they have never disappointed us as a nation unlike the other jokers(the flames) who knows best to disappoint us.To date netball proves to be the only sporting discipline doing us good service on a national level.

  60. Gawa says:

    We’re proud of you. Please work extra hard the Queens. May good Lord bless you!!!

  61. Chiza says:

  65. Dambuleni says:

  66. Rover says:

    Can somebody school me on how these scores are culculated because according to the article the results were like this:
    1st Quarter 19 10
    2nd Quarter 35 22
    3rd Quarter 15 14
    4th Quarter 9 17 (basopo)
    TOTALS 78 63

    Yet the report says our Queens walloped the She-Cranes by 59 to 53 baskets, how are netball scores recorded. Musandiseke sindine wamtauni chonde.

    1. Me says:

      2nd qt result is wrong

  67. Mlomwe says:

  71. Dingie says:

    Congrats ma Queens! We are proud of you. Sindie Simtowe you are good player with good behavior. Expect to be the future national coach for the Queens. You’ve started well. Please keep it up!

  73. Namwali says:

    You are the best and ae are proud of u girls

  74. Baligasima Yazidi says:

    Ugandan gals are still strong, let us strangle there is still chance. viva

  75. Tamanda Sauka says:

    Congrats gals. Why did you allow this small gap? Next time teach the Idi Amin girls a very very bitter lesson. But i want to say that apart from Chilemba, netball we are also good at gossiping and sex

  76. Smickey says:

    Very well done Queens, with such performance this should psychologically inspire the Giants of Africa (the Queens) to take on any team that comes their way…… All the best and keep flying the FLAG!

  77. Charombanthu says:

    No.1, Observer, you don’t just beam these things. You have to buy rights which I must say can be quite expensive. Sikuti amangopanga beam chilichonse chimene mumaona mu ma TV. All the same, congratulations to the Queens and keep it. You make us proud. Let’s hope the corporate Malawi is following this and may be they can change their sponsorship focus from zinazija to netball which is bringing good results and pride to the nation.

  78. chenda says:

    Mulibhoo ma queens

  79. Souja says:

    Nde MBC imeneyo they are also losers,taking into account of the perfomance of the queens,they could have made an effort to show us our proud queens,but anyway losers are losers you can even see ma programme awo,ma presenters eishh!! mabi eni eni!

  86. Mtondoli Jonazi says:

    I was channel surfing and ended up watching their game against Singapore and it was brilliant – my two daughters were actually surprised that I was watching netball since they know I usually watch Top Gear! LOL.

    At least there is one team that we can be proud of as a flag bearer! Go Queens.

  93. Observer says:

    Despite Queens raising Malawi’s flag high it’s surprising not even TVM is beaming the games live? Koma akadakhala anyamata aja osatha aja! How do you motivate the young ones?
