these ladies have done as proud. sorry that you didnt make it, but you guys did a great job


Airtel, you promised MK100,000 each player after a win with the Rastafarians. Our queens stumble with a basket. That was a better achievement. I urge you to give them their monies.

Phiri la Njuzi
I salute the Queens. These guys carry the true Malawian spirit that existed during Kamuzu’s time. With little resources, poor training facilities that are nothing compared to top eight, the Queens conquered. If the Queens had the attention accorded to the Flames they could take position 1 or 2. Our today’s Malawi has little space where achievers can thrive. We are a society that thrives on mediocrity and as we know mediocrity is anti progress. We have too many dunderheads in strategic positions in this country. Just take a look at the president’s team of advisors…….who has credible credentials worthy… Read more »
