Malawi Queens chaos, Mwai dropped

Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) have sent back Australian based netball star from join national camping in readiness for Fast 5 tournament.

Mwai Kumwenda: To feature for Malawi Queens in Fast5 series

Malawi’s netball icon and versatile goal shooter, Mwai Kumwenda joined the camp Thursday in Blantyre to form part of the Malawi squad travelling to Australia but  this did not please NAM officials for Kumwenda to join the camp four days later.

They had to make a decision in which they have agreed to let her go back despite being a star which can help the team fight for honours at the tournament.

Reports are indicating that Kumwenda was not informed of the actual dates for the camping hence she reported late after being asked if she was joining the camp.

The National Netball team went into camping on Sunday, October 8, 2017.

However, it will been seen if NAM will be able to be convinced to rescind it’s decision to go to the tournament without a well experienced shooter who has made grades at international level in the past.

The team is expected to leave the country on October 22, 2017 for the tournament which is scheduled for October 28 and 29, 2017.

It has also emerged that someone from within the camp had made available the final list of the players travelling to the tournament.

This did not go down well with those who were missing out on the list and wanted to leave for home on Friday.

However, it is reported that the issues was calmed down and the said players were requested to remain in camp since the final list is not yet drawn.

NAM officials were not picking their phones in order to shed more light on the decision on Kumwenda’s rejection.

In 2014 NAM dropped Kumwenda in the World Cup netball trip accusing her of lack of discipline when she was asking NAM officials to give the players their training and games bonusses arrears.

On Tuesday this week Kumwenda was quoted in one of the local newspapers saying she wasn’t aware that there is a training for the
Malawi Queens because she did not received any communication from NAM or any official concerning the camp.

Mwai has got a funny character she always wants to be begged and praised but she forgot how we all came together last year to help her by voting for her up-to the point of becoming airtel ambassador which in my honest opinion she does not deserve it, but when it comes to represent her fellow Malawians she wants to be begged, she would rather see her mzungu club doing much better than her Malawian team. mwai stop being full of yourself and learn to love your country we are the ones who made you who you are today and… Read more »

Always when the Queens are being coached by fellow ladies it’s full of scandals and noses, they always prepare to loose. Griffin. Sayenda should groom the fellow man to take over from him than relying from these female coaches who are full of envy and jealousy of Mwai.
