Malawi Queens evergreen shooter Mwayi ‘Professor’ Kumwenda’s electric performance during the just ended Netball World Cup Sydney did not left unnoticed as New Zealanders wished she was in their Silver Ferns team.

For instance, Rere Delamere commented on Facebook that, “I wish she was in the Silver Ferns today. She would have done the job for us. Congrats on the award Mwai.”

Lindiswa Malindy congratulated the Malawi star, saying Africa is very proud of her for scooping the player of the tournament award.

Kumwenda won the 2015 Player of the tournament because of her shooting, which was almost flawless event with 321 goals.

As the most prolific shooter of the 2015 World Cup it is not only the 91% accuracy but the volume that Kumwenda puts up with 351 goals in 8 games over the 10 days and only 31 misses. In 2011 Kumwenda shot 222 goals – at the same 91% accuracy rate.

The only Malawians foreign based netballer started playing netball at 15 but not taking the game seriously until she was 17.

Her prodigious netball ability has taken the now 25 year old to international notice and she was the first African player to sign in a New Zealand Championship franchise, playing for Canterbury Tactix for the past two seasons.

However she had honed her skills earlier in Australia when Victorian coach Maxine Wauchope spotted talent in the 19 year old at the 2009 World Youth Cup in the Cook Islands, and invited Kumwenda to train with her Victorian League team Peninsula Waves.

Making her World Cup debut in Singapore, the Malawi Queen has 57 caps to her name including two Commonwealth Games in Delhi and Glasgow, African Championships and international Tests.

In an interview with Nyasa Times from Lilongwe, where the team has arrived she said she was pleased with her performance during the event.
