But Beatrice Mpinganjira is missing on the list released by Netball Association of Malawi (NAM).

New Zealand based Kumwenda is back in the squad after sorting her differences with the association.

Kumwenda and NAM broke ranks following the players’ decision to snub a national team netball call up ahead of the Queens England tour towards the end of last year.

Reports indicated that the player deliberately dodged the call up demanding that the association pay the players they outstanding dues.

But she is selected alongside Towera Vinkhumbo, Caroline Mtukule, Grace Mwafulirwa, up and coming Joyce Mvula, Martha Dambo and Loreen Ngwira.

Also returning to the squad is -Jessie Mazengera, Joana Kachilika, Takondwa Lazi and Thandie Galeta.

Sharp shooter Sindie Simtowe is also included, alongside Rose Saili, Jane Chimaliro, Beauty Nyangulu, Shira Dima and Rose Mkanda.

Others called are Juliet Sambo, Esther Katungwe, Cecelia Mtukule and Ellen Chiboko.

Malawi Queens has new coach Peace Chawinga-Kalua. She is expected to head the technical panel when Malawi Queens take part in Diamond Challenge in South Africa next week and then compete for Africa Netball Championship in Namibia.

I think malawi should focus on this not football

According to this article Kumwenda will be playing in RSA at the end of this month. However, earlier media reports said that she was not being released by her New Zealand teamd until around 08-July. So what is the truth – she has been only named to the team, but will not be able to play?


Is this a comfortable position? Will she serve with dedication and loyalty to the team?


This is where malawi as a country should seriously invest not football


All the best in the queens
