The Queens bar media
Malawi national netball team coaching panel has disclosed that players will be undergoing closed training sessions ahead of three Test Series against England at the end of the month.
The Times crew was not allowed to capture the team’s training session at Blantyre Youth Centre on Tuesday afternoon when star-shooter, Mwawi Kumwenda, returned to the side following assurances of steps which Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) President, Khungekile Matiya, is taking to address the s tormy rela tionship between the player and the association.
The Queens Team Manager Jane Kachali-Saidi, and assistant Coach Whyte Mulilima, said the media were not allowed to capture the training session.
“We will likely hold a press briefing either on Thursday [today] or Friday. But, as of now, you are not allowed to attend this training [session].
We will not do anything [in training] until you leave these premises,” Kachali-Saidi said.
Nam officials have been reluctant to grant The Times interviews, claiming the media empire is too critical of the association’s decisions on the team, including its expulsion of Mwawi from camp against the wish of the then coach Sam Kanyenda.
