Following cautions from Malawi National Council of Sports, Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) has confessed to errors in their recruitment process of Malawi Queens’s coach.
Nam’s recent recruitment saw Peace Chawinga- Kalua being named Malawi Queens coach with Mary Waya as the deputy.
According to Nam president Rose Chinunda said; “Of course, we made a mistake. We used the same system when selecting Mary Waya. At that time, Sports Council wrote us for future reference that the criterion which we used was not appropriate. So they advised us that in future we should advertise the post and then hold interviews.”
Chinunda also said Sports Council raised a genuine concern when it questioned the contracts that were handed to the two coaches.
“The contracts had the same terms of reference and package. We didn’t differentiate between the head-coach and the deputy. So we need to draft another contract,” she said.
The Nam president said it was their desire to sort out the issue quickly.
“We certainly must come up with a decision by this weekend and then we will formalize everything,” she said.
Queens are expected to go into camp this week in preparation for the Diamond Challenge in South Africa and Africa Netball Championship in Namibia. Both events are set for next month.
