“We have indeed written them to refund us the money we spent during the preparations of the tournament and it’s not only us, even the host country Swaziland have complained about the cancellation,” said Chinunda.
According to Chinunda, NAM spent a lot of money during the two weeks the team stayed in camp plus over K8 Million which the association used to buy air tickets.
“We are trying to ask them if they can refund us the money more especially money for air tickets which amounted to over K8 Million” said Chinunda.
Meanwhile, Chinunda said the COSANA organizers have kept her association on hold pending further discussions on the matter.
