Griffin Saenda won’t beef up the Queens


The Queens’ Head Coach, Griffin Saenda Senior, rejoined the Malawi National Netball Team camp on Friday upon his return from China.

Saenda missed the opening days of the camp as he was taking a breather in Asia.

Upon his return, he instantly took charge of training ahead of the Queens’ participation in the Africa Netball Championship.


Saenda’s immediate task was to assess whether to call for replacements following the unavailability of regulars Mwawi Kumwenda of Melbourne Vixens in Australia, Blue Eagles Sisters centre Takondwa Lwazi and Vice-Captain, Grace Mwafulirwa-Mhango of Tigresses.

“There is no point in replacing the three. We called enough players, so we will continue with our preparations and concentrate on the players we have in camp,” he said.

Saenda said while in China, he communicated with his assistant [Sam Kanyenda] on the squad’s selection.


“We wanted to be speaking the same language and this is happening because we are on the same page with my colleague [Kanyenda],” he said.

The Africa Netball Championship will take place next month in Kampala, Uganda. Outstanding teams from the championship will qualify for Commonwealth Games set for next year in Australia.
