Body-building is considered a domain for males in Malawi. Not so with female bodybuilder Doreen Kumbatila, who impressed during her debut, finishing on position five during the Gentle Giants competition held in South Africa on Saturday.

Reports from South Africa indicate that Kumbatila participated in the competition alongside compatriots, Frazier Zeka and Mr Malawi, Emmanuel Muhuwa, who were in the men’s section.

The trio reportedly self-sponsored the trip.

“We are yet to get full details but Doreen finished fifth, which is commendable,” he said.
