Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) is yet to pay about K1 million to Malawi Queens players for their participation in the August Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Some players confirmed the development saying they were being frustrated to be taken for granted.

“Each player was supposed to receive over K90, 000 for night allowance and game bonus. Up to now nothing has happened,” said one player.

Another player said they were surprised that despite Airtel Malawi and other companies pumping in a lot of money to the Queens they are not paid their allowances for the Commonwealth games.

The players said they were frustrated and that they lack motivation.

This development comes after two more key players Cecilia Mtukule and Tina Kamzati have pulled out of Malawi Netball Queens squad as they prepare for the  Fast5 Netball Series in New Zealand. The event begins on November 7.

The two have followed the country’s only netball export Mwawi Kumwenda who excused herself from the camping squad due to dental problems that require medical attention abroad.

Nam president Rose Chinunda conceded that the association owes the players their allowances for the Commonwealth games but assured the players that they will be paid.

Meanwhile, Queens players were paid their training allowances on Wednesday, each player received K20,000 after the Queens’ official sponsors Airtel Money gave out K6 million to the team for training and camp expenses at Blantyre Youth Centre on Tuesday.
