A decision by Malawi’s first ever professional netball export Mwawi Kumwenda to undergo a tooth operation in South Africa has angered the Netball Association of Malaw (NAM)i which suspects there are some reasons behind her snubbing.
NAM president Rose Chinunda told a local radio station on Friday that NAM has not officially been communicated by the player on the matter.
“We haven’t been communicated officially and what we know is that she is on call up and if she wants to snub, she has to respond through normal procedures,” Chinunda said.
According to Chinunda, Kumwenda’s decision to visit South Africa is meaningless since Malawi also has dental experts who can do a better job.
She however reminded Kumwenda to be patriotic enough and remember where she is coming from.
“She is there because of Malawi government as well as Malawi netball so I really don’t know why [she is snubbing the national team] that is why I am saying we are yet to hear” said the NAM President.
Kumwenda has been an influential player and a hope career for the Malawi Queens.
The Queens are expected to take part in a Fast 5 Netball Competition to be played in Newzealand next month.
The team will be in camp for twelve days before leaving for New Zealand.
