Bravehearts for continental glory


Local basketball giants, Bravehearts, have bolstered their squad with two Tanzania national basketball team players ahead of their participation in the Fiba Africa club championship next year.

The players are Amin Nkosa and Olyn Londo. Nkosa will join the men’s team whereas Londo is set to be part of the ladies’ team.

Bravehearts patron, Griffin Kalua, said his teams are on a serious mission to conquer Africa, hence the need to sign quality international players.

“We are excited to announce that we have two new players from Tanzania. They are good players with experience on the international level and we believe they will improve our teams,” Kalua said.

He said Nkosa is a direct replacement for Wishes Kakomo who has returned to Zimbabwe after the expiry of his deal.

Bravehearts Ladies are on a rebuilding exercise having lost several of their key players at the end of last season.

Nkosa said it was a dream come true to play for Bravehearts.

“I am very excited and I am just waiting for the Malawi government to lift the ban on sports so that I link up with my new teammates. I promised Mr. Kalua that I will join his team because it was my dream to play for Bravehearts,” he said.

The Lilongwe-based men’s and ladies’ sides have also promoted some players from their youth teams for the 2020 season.

For three consecutive years, Bravehearts teams have emerged champions in the Central Zone Basketball League.

The two teams have been participating in international tournaments in Zambia, South Africa, eSwatini, Tanzania and Zimbabwe over the years.
