Malawi face 2019 volleyball headache


Volleyball Association of Malawi (Vam) General Secre¬tary, Jairos Nkhoma, has said his body faces a daunting task to host the 2019 Confederation of African Volleyball Zone VI Championship.
The announcement that Vam would host the championship was made at the end of this year’s tournament which took place in Zimbabwe earlier this month.
South Africa will host the 2018 edition.
Nkhoma said lack of inter¬national facilities poses a chal¬lenge to Malawi’s dream of hosting the biggest champion-ship of Southern Africa.
He said they would seek Ma¬lawi National Council of Sports (MNCS) to intervene.
“It would be better if we start preparing now. You know, it is embarrassing that when we go to other countries, we play on in-doors courts, but here, we do not have facilities of such kind.
“Much as we are excited that we will host the tournament, which would be beneficial to the country in terms forex genera¬tion, modern-standard facility remains a challenge,” he said.
He said the country should have had community in-door courts instead of relying on pri¬vate-owned facilities.
Nkhoma, however, said his association would work tireless¬ly with relevant stakeholders to address the challenges before 2019.
MNCS Executive Secretary, George Jana, said the council was ready to work with Vam.
“They are yet to write us on the matter. And it is our man¬date to help in any way possible. But they have to follow proper channels,” he said.
Malawi hosted a similar tournament in 2013.
