Council pardons Nam on Presidential Netball Cup

Malawi National Council of Sports (MNCS) has rescinded its decision to bar Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) from staging , .

Nam and other associations were stopped from holding the annual competition following their failure to submit financial reports.

Sports Council Acting Executive Secretary, Henry Mereka, said Nam was admitted back after submitting an improved financial report.

“We had to accommodate them because they submitted some supporting documents as part of their financial report. In the meantime, we are still monitoring Nam activities as far as the Presidential Cup is concerned,” Mereka said.

He said Sports Council released funds to cater for regional and district level whereas national level allocation will be released later.

“The idea is that we want to see how they will manage funds at district and regional level before releasing the rest of the funds to cater for national level,” he said.

Nam General Secretary, Carol Bapu, said they were administering the competition cautiously.

“The competition started last year and we are now at district level. So far so good, everything is progressing well,” she said.

Bapu said they intend to finish the district level by February 22 before staging regional finals by next month.

Nam receives K30 million allocation from the government through Sports Council to stage the competition.

Kukoma Diamonds are the defending champions.
