Nam aspirants under scrutiny


Aspirants for Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) executive positions are keeping their fingers crossed that they will be allowed to vie for posts when the body goes to polls on August 7 in Salima.

High Court Judge Sylvester Kalembera, who is heading the association’s electoral body, confirmed that they were scrutinising nominations before clearing eligible candidates to contest.

“Successful names will be released by Wednesday,” he said.


Kalembera could not be drawn to disclose the names of candidates that had received nominations before last Saturday’s deadline.

However, he confirmed that both former Nam treasurer Abigail Shariff and ex- Malawi National Netball Team captain Emmie Waya-Chongwe had secured nominations.

The development comes after Nam President Khungekile Matiya withdrew from the race due to unspecified reasons.


Nam’s elective annual general meeting was initially slated for May 29 but Malawi National Council of Sports stopped the process after receiving a complaint from one of the candidates highlighting irregularities that marred the process.

Before the postponement of the elections, former Kukoma Diamonds general secretary Chimwemwe Bakali and business woman Anastasia Kaphale were set to battle for the vice presidency.

Netball legend Linda Magombo-Munthali and ex-Diamonds official Isaac Chimwala secured nominations for the post of general secretary whereas Diana Nkhulambe, Yamikani Khungwa- Kauma and Vitumbiko Mwademange Gubuduza were nominated for the position of vice general secretary.

Agness Chaima and Tadala Billie were expected to fight for the position of treasurer whereas Chancy Munthali and Cecilia Mtukule were expected to contest for the post of vice treasurer.
