Malawi Congress Party(MCP) Member of Parliament for Salima North West and parliamentary women caucus chair, Jessie Kabwila has asked all netball lovers in the country to remain united following the poor performance of Malawi National Netball team in the just ended 2017 World Fast5 Netball Series tournament in Australia.
Kabwila said this at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) when welcoming the flag carriers on their way back from Australia.
“Its a reality that our girls didn’t leave home and go to Australia to lose, they tried their best but it was just unlucky that they failed to make us proud so let the players know that we stand with them regardless of what happened. As Malawians, we should leave the loss behind, investigate the weak point and encourage all the players that if they did it in the past, they can also do it better again in the coming competitions,” Kabwila told Nyasa Times.
“This is the right time where the team needed our total support by welcoming them at the airport in large numbers especially when they lose because they feel motivated not leaving them alone that’s not good. They fought a good fight and we all know this so why should we treat them as if they are not our children? ” She added.
However, no government official was sent to welcome the Queens’.
Malawi lost all Fast5 games at the tournament.
