LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Central Region Football Association (CRFA) has pleaded with National team’s and Super League scouts to be patronizing their leagues and cups for the talents nurtured in the region to be exposed.

The remarks have been made by Antonio Sanchez Manda who is the CRFA Vice general Secretary during the launch of MK5 million Nyasa Capital Finance Regional Cup at Mitundu Primary School ground in Lilongwe on Saturday, October 23, 2021.

Manda said that,it is sad that for so long now,no player from their leagues and cups has played in the national teams despite the efforts made by the association in securing Sponsors for the districts.

“The scouts just concentrate much on Super League games and giving us blind eye when it comes to identification of players.It pains us a lot ,we are doing a lot trying to develop the sport in the country but at the same time,people tasked to look for national team players do not come to watch our games”, he lamented.

Commenting on the inaugural regional Nyasa Capital Finance Cup launch, Manda said, as an association they are excited and impressed saying that’s what they anticipated for the region to be more active and at the same time to be more competitive.

In her remarks, Regional Manager for Nyasa Capital Finance, Zione Chiwaula said as a company they expect the cup to be patronized in a free and fair manner to avoid tarnishing the image of the company.

Chiwaula further appealed to CRFA to use the money on intended purpose so that the main aim of the cup is achieved which is to see the youths developing into professional players.

In a ceremonial launch game, Ekas Freight Wanderers defeated Mitundu Strikers FC by two goals to nil. Laurent Kenneth and Limbani Phiri scored in each half.Both teams displayed beautiful football though Ekas Freight Wanderers dominated the ball possession.

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) and Nyasa Capital Finance Limited Company signed a MK45 million Sponsorship deal for the regional cups on September 17, 2021 at Bingu National Stadium.The contract is expected to run for three years and each region will be getting MK5 million per annum.

In the Central region the cup is expected to kick off on October 23 and end on December 18, 2021.

24 Premier division teams are to participate and have been grouped into three zones namely, Mchinji, Salima and Lilongwe.

Solomon Islands Tension – The Maravi Post

Published

Three bodies were found in a burnt out building in Honiara amid this week’s violence in the capital of the Solomon Islands, Australian media reported. Authorities had put a curfew in place on Friday night in an attempt to stem the unrest and the situation seemed to be calmer on Saturday. But the government showed no signs of addressing the underlying grievances that sparked two days of riots, including concerns about the country’s increasing links with China. Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare sought to deflect attention from domestic issues by blaming outside interference for stirring up the protesters, with a thinly veiled reference to Taiwan and the United States. Honiara’s Chinatown and its downtown precinct were focuses of rioters, looters and protesters who demanded the resignation of Sogavare, who has been prime minister intermittently since 2000. Sogavare has been widely criticized by leaders of the country’s most populous island of Malaita for a 2019 decision to drop diplomatic ties with Taiwan in favor of mainland China. His government, meanwhile, has been upset over millions in U.S. aid promised directly to Malaita, rather than through the central government. Those issues are just the latest in decades of rivalry between Malaita and Guadalcanal, where the capital, Honiara, is located, said Jonathan Pryke, director of the Sydney-based Lowy Institute think tank’s Pacific Islands program. The Solomon Islands, with a population of about 700,000, are located about 1,500 kilometers (1,000 miles) northeast of Australia.

Immunology professor talks about the new coronavirus variant – The Maravi Post

Published

Passengers at Johannesburg’s O.R Tambo airport scrambled this Saturday to find flights to Europe as more and more countries are shutting doors to passengers coming from African countries.

The emergence of the new coronavirus Omicron variant in South Africa sparked a worldwide reaction.

Professor of Immunology Danny Altmann explains.

“I know it feels very harsh to people in South Africa who have really done the right thing and been terribly speedy and vigilant in their reporting. But I just feel that we were so slow to act on Delta and the whole world paid such a high price for it. Let’s try and be forewarned and do it properly this time. So, I think it probably is warranted”, said the academic working at Imperial College London.

Last minute PCR tests are now mandatory.

The UK-based professor believes that vaccination still offers protection against the worst effects of this disease.

“I think it’s a case of kind of hope for the best and fear the worst, isn’t it? So in some ways, if you look at the straight molecular biology limitations, it looks potentially quite a lot scarier even than Delta. And don’t forget, we thought of Delta. I certainly thought Delta as a peak variant, and probably it couldn’t get much worse than that. This looks potentially worse. On the other hand, there’s no reporting from South Africa yet that cases are more severe, and it looks like vaccines may still be doing something because we heard there yesterday that the people in hospital tended to be the unvaccinated people rather than the vaccinated”, said Professor Altmann.

In Africa vaccination rates are significantly lower compared to Europe, the United States and other regions.

According to Professor Altmann, distribution of vaccines throughout Africa is essential to stop future variants.

“You know, in this particular case, if it did come out of Botswana and or South Africa, there has been quite a lot of vaccine available there. But as you say in the African continent as a whole, they’ve been very short of vaccines compared to Europe or North America. And things like this demonstrate how foolhardy that is. We’re just breeding the future variants to come and haunt us. Why do it?”

The latest available data indicate that South Africa has registered almost 3 million cases of Covid-19 and close to 90,000 deaths.
