This was disclosed by the company’s general manager Frank Mvula after the company donated cooking oil to the players as a token of appreciation for the 2015 Netball World Cup played in Sydney Australia.

“This is a team which is making us proud as a nation and it continues to expose what Malawi can do to the rest of the world,” Mvula said.

He said the donation of the cooking oil was made to promote healthy diet among the players.

“As we would like to promote healthy eating within the team we would like to establish a long term relationship. We will discuss with the officials how we can be part of the team,” he said.

He said more details regarding the sponsorship would be revealed later after the meeting with Netball Association of Malawi.

NAM General Secretary Carol Bapu confirmed that the company had expressed interest to support the national team.

“For now let me just say that they approached us to see if we can establish a long term relationship. It is a welcome development but we will have to sit down first,” Bapu said.

A group of Malawians also donated K2.7 million to the teams after the teams’ exploits in Australia in which they came so close to break into the top four.

Shooter Mwawi Kumwenda was named player of the tournament.

I agree with Denguzman, a donation is a donation. If the company is a cooking oil manufacturer or producer whatever is correct then it must donate it’s products period. All the sponsorship all over the world is about advertisement that’s why all the popular brands are associated with winners or achievers. So there is nothing wrong with that cos in Malawi as far as Im concerned people used to buy snatchers of cooking oil just to prove how hard it is to get a bottle of cooking. If the cooking oil is not tripple rig inde the problem is Malawi… Read more »
