Malawi Queens flop in Australia: Fast5 World Series

Even before they embarked for Melbourne, Australia for this year’s Fast5 World Series the Malawi Queens were back home already judged to under-perform.

This followed the controversy that surrounded the ommission of star shooter Mwawi Kumwenda.

The decision was enforced by the Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) following Mwawi’s late reporting for camping.

Nevertheless, the team has fared poorly in the tournament so farhaving lost all their three opening matches on day 1 of the tournament.

They lost 34-21 to hosts Australia before losing to England 43-15 and finally Jamaica by 31 baskets to 24.

Their continental rivals South Africa are also having a nightmare having also lost all their opening three matches.

They lost to Jamaica 37-29, Newzealand 40-26 and England 31-24.

Meanwhile, Malawians through comments on social media are pushing the blame on NAM for leaving out Mwawi.

According to many, Mwawi’s inclusion could have brought positive results or reduce the goal defeceit in Queen’s defeats.

My Queens . Failure does not determine your character, its how you respond to failure. You are world class Netball team, you have taught and beaten the best. Forget about the individually frustrated malawians because you are not. You are the Queens, each one of you. Sing the National Anthem with the commitment at heart of what it stands for. You are the best. Each one of you, do it for every loving malawian and for your sister Mwawi.


NAM…… you have put our team into bad history….. Regard shuffle the organization leadership….. Kwachuluka ziazimayi zonyasa Mitima…… Please love your country by doing what’s best Osati zomwe MA hormone Anu afuna…

NAM should feel sweet with these results paja nzimene ankafuna mbite


Its not a matter of blaming NAM but team needs more skills, watched them and play very good but need skills.


These losses are courtesy of Carlo Bapu. No need for more whinning here. She is damn responsible . Ugong’oli Carlo kusamva. #bringbackmwawi#
