Thanks a lot our ladies of wisdom. You are our pride in Malawi. Please keep it up!!! Special thanks to Joyce Mvula. Very beautiful lady with good structure and behavior. We heard that you were nursing an injury in UK and that was a very good reason enough to excuse yourself from this tournament. But alas!! you are not like Mwawi Kumwenda who is proud of herself. Too much milandu and kuzimva. Keep it up Joyce. We love you and wish you all the best. I’m sure Malawi will keep you as our future Netball National Team Couch. God bless… Read more »

You sons of gods in the state house. Build the queens a national arena. They are the only thing going for us in this spiritless decrepit republic. Netball is all we are good at. Enhance. Build arenas and lets start to host international tournaments…. I would build it in salima or livingstonia to attract tourism. Get off your asses you old donkey farts and do something good for a change. Dwibs
