Malawi’s only professional netball player, Mwawi Kumwenda, who is on off -season from her Australian Club and back with Escom Sisters, will miss weekend’ s encounter against MTL Queens in the OG Issa Southern Region Netball League at Blantyre Youth Centre as she is going on charity work.
Kumwenda will be travelling to Salima where she is scheduled to donate various items to orphans.
The Peninsula Waves star, told Nyasa Times that she is expected to visit some orphanages and give donations.
“I will miss Sunday’s game against MTL because I will be on charity work in Salima to visit the under previledged children. I will also share with them some clothes,” she disclosed.
Kumwenda was instrumental during this year’s Netball Presidential Cup as she led Escom Sisters to victory.
Escom Coach Griffin ‘Zagalo’ Saenda applauded Kumwenda’s performance since her return from Australia.
“She has improved a lot, and we will miss her in Saturday’s match. However, we have other players like Jessica, who lam grooming to fill in her shoes,” said Saenda.
Sunday’s encounter promises to explode fireworks, as MTL will be looking forward to welcome back their vast experience shooter Mary ‘Atcheya’ Waya who missed last week’s encounter against Bingu Tigresses due to an ankle injury.
