Ulaya contest set for September return


Ulaya Classics Bodybuilding contest is set to return in September after a two-year break.

The event’s founder and sponsor Charles Ulaya said they could not hold the event last year due to Covid-19 pandemic.

“We had so many restrictions last year; as such, we could not stage the event. But now the restrictions have been eased so we are planning to hold it in September,” he said.


Ulaya said they would invite bodybuilders from other surrounding countries to make the contest competitive and colourful.

“Some top bodybuilders from countries like Kenya, Zimbabwe and Zambia would like to participate. We feel the inclusion of international bodybuilders will make the event bigger and better,” he said.

Ulaya said this year’s event would start at district level where top bodybuilders will qualify for the national phase.


“The idea is to make the contest available to everyone and, at the same time, selecting the best to have the cream at national finals,” he said.

Chisomo Kajamu was the first bodybuilder to be crowned Ulaya Classic champion during an event staged at Bingu International Convention Centre in Lilongwe in September 2016.

Kajamu underlined his prowess in front of sizeable spectators including Vice-President, Saulos Chilima.

He pocketed a cool K1 million for emerging the champion. Emanuel Muhuwa came second whereas Henry Master claimed third-spot.
