Mwai Kumwenda: Recalled

Kumwenda and NAM broke ranks following the players’ decision to snub a national team netball call up ahead of the Queens England tour towards the end of last year.

The player opted to go to South Africa to undergo a medical operation which according to Nyasa Times findings, the trip never took place but rather the player conducted netball clinics in the northern region of Malawi.

She was later summoned by NAM but vehemently refused to appear before NAM committee. Speaking in an interview on Tuesday, NAM General Secretary Carol Bapu said the association has sent a warning letter to the player never to repeat such habits.

“As of now, the matter has been settled,” said Bapu.

“It is the first time for the player to commit an offence hence serving her with the warning. She is our child and let me assure you that she will be seen playing in the next coming Queens games” she said.

Reports indicated that the player deliberately dodged the call up demanding that the association pay the players they outstanding dues.

Phado’s very right. Northenerz are seggregatory & alwayz give fellow tumbukaz first chance. Yakwithu syndrome


NAM work up and punish this idiot. You wont lose anything because this idiot will never come back into your camp. So finish her as she is finishing you. Kuthanakuthana basi. Mwana sakula kumaso kuposa kwake. Strip anything that she is using for Malawi. Strip her off any clearance certificate from you.


take note that Linda Magombo Munthali is a sena from Chikwawa she is just married there and therefore you cant conclude that she is a Northener. Shut up Phodogona


Please Mary Waya dont come here. We want Mwayi and other players to join queens for August netball competition.


I beg you Mwai come back and assist your team please. Problems are part of our life. Problems are there for us. Take it with your fellow players and NAM. Surely it will be resolved.Imagina Queens being grouped with Singapore, Sir lanka and South Africa. This is a fair group.


Please note that Mary Waya’s mother is from Nkhatabay and her father is from Mulanje and they are settled in Mzuzu.


NAM may promote players, but don’t play the game. Reading this article makes me feel NAM has learned nothing about its poor management and conflict-resolution skills. They are still projecting the image the player was wrong while in actual fact they coerced her to stay away. With a string of eight consecutive losses NAM still wants us to believe in them. Stop this nonsense Bapu and your circle!

I am contributor # 21 by the name phodos. I have related the behaviour of Mwayi in this caseon tribalistic basis. I contributed that out of my experience as a regular reader of this social network. I am not a member of NAM and I dont have access to classified data from NAM. I am just a sobber reader. But it appears what I have said is exactly what is between Mwayi and the queens coach Mary. I have read contribution on this page from another contributor that has linked me to something like a website. The contributor was against… Read more »

Stop ridiculing the northerners. They are also Malawians. Mwayi is a Net ball luminary and is indispensable. If you believe you can do without her, so be it. By the way how many times have the Queens done well without Mwayi? Live her alone you idiots.
