Mwawi’s call up snub angers Netball Association of Malawi

A decision by Malawi’s first ever professional netball export Mwawi Kumwenda to undergo a tooth operation in South Africa has angered the Netball Association of Malaw (NAM)i which suspects there are some reasons behind her snubbing.

Chinunda:  There is more than meets the eye

Chinunda: There is more than meets the eye

NAM president Rose Chinunda told a local radio station on Friday that NAM has not officially been communicated by the player on the matter.

“We haven’t been communicated officially and what we know is that she is on call up and if she wants to snub, she has to respond through normal procedures,” Chinunda said.

According to Chinunda, Kumwenda’s decision to visit South Africa is meaningless since Malawi also has dental experts who can do a better job.

She however reminded Kumwenda to be patriotic enough and remember where she is coming from.

“She is there because of Malawi government as well as Malawi netball so I really don’t know why [she is snubbing the national team] that is why I am saying we are yet to hear” said the NAM President.

Kumwenda has been an influential player and a hope career for the Malawi Queens.

The Queens are expected to take part in a Fast 5 Netball Competition to be played in Newzealand next month.

The team will be in camp for twelve days before leaving for New Zealand.

The young woman holds a high position in the Nyika Secession Movement and she thinks she is fighting the current administration by snubbing NAM’s call up. Please let her go, mtumbuka wachabechabe uyu. Replace her with a Malawian not another Northerner.

She is there because of Malawi govt and Malawi netball? ????? NO NO NO THATS INCORRECT. Ali there because of Luso lake/ talent that God gave her. If people play professional soccer or netball because of Malawi government then you should be sending thousands out since you have the capacity kkkkkk

I see we hv a problem here. Mwawi and NAM hv issues to sort out as it is an inside issue and to the Nyasatimes reporters plz b4 u publish any article it’s better u verify the source of an issue and pipo involved, when evidence is tangible then u publish. As 4 now names of pipo wil be pulled in the mud. Sumthing is cooking sumwhere. Resolve the issues now b4 the can of worms are opened.
