Caroline Ngwira returns for Kukoma tourney


After a year-long absence, Malawi netball Queens and Kukoma Diamonds skipper Caroline Mtukule-Ngwira is expected back in action this weekend.

Ngwira is expected to feature for Diamonds in the two-day Kukoma Invitational Tournament, which throws off on Saturday at Blantyre Youth Centre.

Ngwira was on maternity break and she eventually gave birth to her second child [Melisa] on December 21 last year.


The influential goal-defender-cum-goal keeper said she was looking forward to helping Diamonds win the four-team tournament that also features Tigresses, Thunder Queens and Alliance Capital Stars.

“It has been a long road to action. Previously, I was just working in the gym to recondition myself. I started training with my teammates when the team regrouped in April. The tournament has come at the right time,” Ngwira said.

She also backed the tournament, saying it would help teams prepare for the new season.


Meanwhile, Diamonds’ sponsor, Capital Oil Refining Industries’ Sponsorship Coordinator, Violet Kapolo, has challenged the team to impress during the tournament.

Meanwhile, the organisers are yet to confirm if spectators will pay at the gates.
