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

  2. Youthful says:

    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. After all, this is our money from the exorbitant prices you charge us for using our own phones when chatting with our loved ones. Please give them their money.

    Lets not praise failure. The Queens have surrendered 5th position to RSA. What excuse do you have?

    Shaaaa! Any way kisses are waiting for you first ladies of the country of Malawi.

    munalibe game plan olo strategy ili yonse inuyo. all your energy was wasted on the easy games (malawi101-sri lanka 18). by the time you met the big dogs, you were exhausted.

    next time, muzikamenyetsa 2nd team kaye then unleash the 1st team kumapeto ok? now look, we’re not even 1st in africa anymore. griffin ali kutu kodi?

    No matter you have lost to south are a team of skills and know what netball is.Bravo to you girls

  8. kazeze says:

    Sorry queens, you have done your best but not all days are sundays. The one point you need to is you have the team that can win but you need to correct a few in-house concerns. A house divided cant stand. Check out at the management level to ensure complete player motivation.

    Well done Malawi queen

  10. Phiri la Njuzi says:

    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 talking about. Look at public sector you only mediocrity mediocrity in top jobs. Thank you Queens for making us feel like a worthwhile society.

    Back to real business, Chinunda and Bapu out of Nam. Nothing has changed or been achieved bar enhancing Mwawis status. They have beaten the same teams they always beat and likewise clobbered by the same teams that beat team and yet a Malawi kusangalala when the Team is following Flames foot steps with current NAM administration, bola tikanagula zakudya zama patient ku Bwaila Hospital.

    Hard luck! We lov u, ua darlings to the nation

    Much ado about nothing.

    I was watching the Queens during the wee hours. They made Malawi proud and gave everything .. at one moment taking the lead, then bad luck, then again. It was a big game with the arch-rivals in sport. The spirits of the coaches were great. I felt many spectators sounded supportive for Malawi. The Malawi colors were beautiful like the Queens themselves. You do not have to be on the 5th Spotlight. Your best is always good enough. Congrats to the Queens

  15. Sapitwa says:

    Pepani kuti you will come back without a new record. Otherwise you tried!

  16. tshepo says:

    Lol I gues the proteas is having da last laugh,can’t wait for my malawi neighbours to congradulate me and my team

  17. Truck says:

    Congratulations Queens! You played very and you tried all your best there is always next time.

  18. opportunist says:

    Congrats the Queens .Thumbs up Mwayi Kumwenda for the award .

  19. Wakwithu ndi Wakwathu says:

    fatigue and short time for training coupled with late sponsor ship which leads to psychological effect

  20. Kenny maytaya says:

    well done lady’s

  21. Edwin Mwalwen says:

  22. Lovemaniac 91 says:

    Welcome results! Zawavuta ndi ati; tumbukas, chewas, yaos, senas, tongas, ngondes? Shame! Aganyufe tingoti; Quota, pliz!

  23. chris chimphamba says:

    u tried to defend bt the day was’nt yours but maintain ur position is’nt simple.I conglatulate u much in a competition everybody fights for position one bt not all of u can be position number one thus is called competition.

  24. Phantom Enchanter says:

    Bad ending to the fairytale story….hard luck girls u still the best makamaka Carol Mtukule uyu…….NAM nd the technical team better sit down and plan ahead,set targets and promote the game countrywide…so of the girls playing now may not be there the next tournament…..we need netball academies..netball youth tournaments that will ensure good progression of the system being set……perfomance wise the Queens have better under Peace nd Mary maintain those two and surely we will break the top 4 huddle…….
