Malawi Queens shooter and star power Mwai Kumwenda’s return to the national team squad depends on Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) addressing the welfare issues the player raised her legal advisorHlupikire Phiri Chalamba has said.
Chalamba said the New Zealand based star was ready and willing to return to Malawi Queens
only if the welfare issues were addressed.
“It’s not that she is turning her back on the team but she wants things to change. She still wants to play for the team but not under present conditions,” Chalamba told the local press.
Nam general secretary Carol Bapu said the shooter was going to return to Malawi Queens fold after the association and the players agreed to resolve their differences.
But Chalamba accused Nam of rushing to the media “before sorting out the issue”.
The Malawi Queens will soon regroup for this year’s Netball World Cup slated for August in Sydney, Australia.
The Queens are in the same group with Singapore, Sri Lanka and bitter rivals South Africa.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
