The company’s Sales and Marketing manager Bruno Silas said on Tuesday at their Head Offices in Limbe during the launching ceremony, which was graced by Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) general secretary Carol Bapu, Southern Region Netball league chairman Khungekile Matiya and Annie Hanjahanja.

Silas said the league will be called Rainbow Paints 25th Anniversary Southern Region Netball League as part of celebrating that their company has clocked 25 years.

He also said it pleased Rainbow Paints to sponsor the netball league because they have never been let down Southern Region League administration.

Silas, was however, quick to remind the administrators that the sponsorship would continue in years to come depending on impressive administration and discipline among teams.

“We are happy to be associated with netball, and let me assure you that we are here to stay and hopefully we might go national. What we need is transparency and accountability to move forward,” said Silas.

In her remarks, Southern Region Netball League chairperson Khungekile Matiya hailed Rainbow Paints for what she described as timely gesture.

She said after OG Group Companies withdrew its sponsorship they thought it was over for Southern Region League.

“We do not take this for granted because you have rescued us.

“We are very thankful and we urge other companies to emulate your example. You could have partnered with football but by choosing netball we say bravo Rainbow Paints,” she said.

Matiya also saluted Sports Writers Union for a cordial relationship with Southern Region Netball League.

Netball Association of Malawi general secretary Carol Bapu hailed Rainbow Paints for taking a lead in uplifting netball in the country.

The champions will go away with K600,000 with the second team cartering home K300,000.

The third team will go away with K200,000, while the fourth team will smile all the way to the bank to cash K150,000.

Bapu, however urged other companies to emulate Rinbow Paints example by preferring to sponsor netball Leagues in central and northern region.

“Despite netball putting the nation on the world map, it is sad that we still struggle to find sponsorship in central and northern region. Let me salute Rainbow Paints for this sponsorship because even for Malawi Queens to do well we rely on players, who play in such leagues,” said Bapu.

For instance, she said 99 percent of Malawi Queens players come from Rainbow Paints Southern Region League.

“You are not painting only Southern Region but the whole nation. Let me also remind Malawians that this is a win- win situation as such let us help this company by using their products,” she said.

Sports Writers Union President Peter Kanjere also hailed Rainbow Paints for remembering the media in the sponsorship.

For instance, Kanjere said it pleased Rainbow and Swam to introduce new category of best reporter in Rainbow Paints in the awards.

Kanjere also said they will recognize the best on-line reporter, best Television reporter, best radio reporter, best print media reporter and the best photo journalist.—(Additional reporting by Jeromy Kadewere, Nyasa Times)
