“It is a big contribution towards the development of basketball in the north. With the coming in of G.Y Imports and Exports, we expect the teams that disbanded due to lack of sponsorship to be resuscitated,”Nkhwazi said.


Managing director of G.Y Imports and Exports, Griffin Kalua, said the aim of the sponsorship was to bring back the glory days of basketball.

“Basketball used to be second to football, but for whatever reasons, the sport just collapsed. As a company, we want to help in revamping the sport while at the same time, expressing appreciation for the support we get from basketball players and all Malawians,” he said.

Recently, the company sponsored an All-Star National Basketball

Championship involving the three basketball zones of Southern Zone Basketball League, Central Zone Basketball League and Nozobal to the tune of K3 million.
