Malawi’s Waya to return to Tanzania for netball coaching role

Malawi netball legend shooter Mary Waya will return to Tanzania to continue coaching Filbert Bayi Foundation netball team after a two-month vacation.

Waya is expected to resume her work after August 3, according to a Tanzanian on line publication .

“Waya left the country early this year for her annual leave and while in Malawi she was temporarily employed as the assistant national team head coach and she guided the team to the second place of the African netball championship which her country hosted early last month,” reported IPP Media.

The development is good news to Filbert Bayi Foundation Netball team who had doubted her future at the club after being engaged as Malawi assistant coach for the Africa Championship held in June.

“She send us an email saying she will be in the country on August 3 this year , we are looking forward to work with her, there are many projects which she started, her coming back will help to finish them.”

Waya won national netball first division championship for Filbert Bayi Foundation Netball team last year.

She is also attributed for putting development and youth structures at the team by among others establishing under 11-14 teams at the foundation.

The Malawian has been elusive to local media saying she will comment about her future at some point.

In a related developmet, the meeting which was expected to resolve the future of Waya and fellow Malawi Queens coach Peace Chawinga-Kalua was not held as earlier announced.

Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) General Secretary Carol Bapu said the meeting would be held soon after the GOtv Netball Champions League final round expected to end on August 3 in Lilongwe.

“Some technical hitches forced us to postpone the meeting,” she said.
