Matiya beat Hellene Mpinganjiea Tasosa for the top spot with 37 votes against nine and would replace outgoing president  Rosy Chinunda, who did not defend the presidency after serving for three consecutive four-year terms.

She spoke of developing the game of netball from ‘the grass root level’ , saying the under-21 team deserves a stable corporate sponsorship.

“I will try my best to secure a sponsor for them,” she said.
