Bingu Tigresses coach-player Peace Chawinga-Kalua has launched a stinging attack on Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) on its selection of Malawi Queens squad scheduled to take part in this year’s African Championship Tournament in Tanzania.
Kalua wrote on Malawi Netball Facebook account accusing the association for their selection described as not based on merit.
She wrote: “NAM, I mean our netball Malawi you will never change; you mean you cannot do justice
even once? This is national team we are talking about.”
The Queens are starting training camp at Superior Hotel in Blantyre, Malawi. They will be training at Blantyre Youth Centre.
Chawinga accused NAM of not consulting the coaching committee in squad selection.
But one Chidzukulu Cha Steven differed with Chawinga on the same post by saying, “My dear sister Peace I have failed to restrain myself on this matter. I didn’t expect we could get such comments from you on a forum like this.
“My understanding is that you being one of the national coaches you are part of the system and you know how to raise such matters rather than on a public platform like this. Please bring forth your issues through our GS (general secretary) and we will definitely attend to this. Let’s build our team and netball together…”
However, Cecilia Sheena Mtukule concurred with Chawinga on same page by attacking NAM for sidelining players from the central region.
Mtukule was of the views that the squad is comprised of many players form Blantyre than Lilongwe.
The full list is as follows: shooters-Sindie Simtowe, Linda Magombo-Munthali (Bingu Tigresses), Joyce Mvula (Blue Eagles), Jenny Chimaliro (Civonets), Jessie Mazengera (Escom) and Mwawi Kumwenda (Peninsula Waves-Australia).
Attackers: Beatrice Kadango (Bingu Tigresses), Tina Kamzati (Civonets), Thandi Galeta (MTL Queens) and Maggie Sikwese (Mzuzu).
