154

The fairytale continues to unfold for Mwawi Kumwenda as she has succeeded Ivorian footballer Yaya Toure as Airtel’s brand ambassador for “it’s now” campaign.

Airtel Malawi acting managing director, Charles Kamoto, confirmed the news yesterday. He said they have been driven by the hope that she is going to make a positive change.

Mwawi Kumwenda

Kumwenda: Its now.

The campaign is aimed at empowering the youth in different aspects. The “it’s now” slogan serves to challenge the youth that this is the right time to act if they are to achieve their dreams just like the sports personality associated, in this regard Mwawi Kumwenda.

Kumwenda is indeed in her harvesting season as she scooped two awards last year; player of the tournament at the 2015 Australia Netball World Cup and Malawi sports personality of the year award. She has also recently been nominated for athlete of the year honour by International World Games Association (IWGA).

In reaction to her appointment by Airtel, Kumwenda has been posting pictures on social media which shows her in Airtel white and red colours while holding a ball.

The 27 year-old is the country’s sole netball export and is currently plying her trade with a New Zealand club. She falls in the line of influential sports people in Africa as evidenced by her ambassadorial role at Airtel.

    • Dr Richards Carson,

      What shall it benefit a man to gain the world and lose his own soul to Satan and his demons and Hell and the eternal lake of fire?? Choose Jesus Christ now, and repent from your sins, for He is ready to forgive you in this period of grace. You know already as Illuminatis/Satanists that your Master the devil was defeated by Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, for the Salvation of our souls, thberefore, save yourself from this wicked world by accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour and Lord, and you must be born again, lest you perish in eternal damnation in the lake of fire!!!!

  5. You are a bright star shinning for the warm heart of Africa. Though BBC is jealousy, not even a clip! Is it because she is from Malawi? Shame on you BBC. Congrats Mwawi.

  6. YAYA TOURE was representing 17 African Countires mu Africa muno as Airtel’s brand ambassador, apa aAirtel sakunena bwinobwino kuti the moment Mwawi wapanga succeed YAYA kodi nayenso aziyimira 17 African Countries kapena its only here in Malawi .?

  8. dont worste the story here by insulting,mocking as well as seperating multiculturalism, just praise mwayi for representing malawi rather than indicating your ignorance here,congrats mwayi.

  9. Don’t be fooled urself, being criticism by publishing zopanda nzelu akusankhana mitundu apa ndani, pls step a side if u don’t have any idea.

  10. #mussa pathako pako nichifukwa chakeso kuno ku joni ukungokhalila kuola manyi aGalu cz umbuli basi nzanu asachite bwino? Nfiti iwe? Mwai uyiboh ndipo wayimila dziko la malawi otsati chi mussa ndipo machende ako .plz inbox me mussa for more

  11. Amalinyero inu! azungu akamakusalani nde muziti akulakwa? pamene nokhanokha mukubowana. Aoneni,eti! chewa, Lomwe, yao, sena,nkhonde,sukwa, tumbuka. Zachani! as matter of fact i don’t see any superior tribe here, we’re all engulfed by one of earth’s weak limbs. Lucky Kumwenda is lucky as her name claims that. You are troubles no matter which tribe you are from troubles will abundantly shower on you. Ana Opusa!!!

    • I cant see on de post where they hav said its about tribalism or is it because its you who always hate other tribe and u always want to cause a fight

    • Uncle, try to follow the conversation, can’t you see the conflicting comments from different people? And i neither mentioned your name nor displayed my tribe. Now i wonder with your blaming reply about tribalism on me who isn’t at all a tribal artist. Forgive me i’m too weak to game on for the issue in question.

  12. #mussa ukhalira yomweo yonyoza olo akhale mbwenu vuto lako ndichani ulibe ndimanyaz pagulu ndiwe ntundu wanji anthu,iii anthu othawa nkhondonu kuvuta eshii

  13. I have been following BBC FOCUS ON AFRICA,but am very sory no any news about Kumwendas position as asuccesor of Yaya tuore,,had it been was anigerian or any other country from west africa,shame on BBC

    • I got the news from a kenyan friend on tuesday, i tweeted n shared it on my facebook wall, surprisingly people were nt aware about this. Checked on BBC social media outlets, airtel Malawi and most local media there was none. Until today nothing on BBC.

    • YAYA TOURE was representing 17 African Countires mu Africa muno, apa aAirtel sakunena bwinobwino kuti the moment Mwawi wapanga replace YAYA kodi nayenso aziyimira 17 countries kapena its only here in Malawi .?

    • Kodi amenewa zinakalipobe zimene zija bwanji chikho cha nkangano umenewu sichionetsedwa? ndimafuna nditadzaona luza ndi wina wa zopusa zimenezi.

    • Go deeper and search who both Mwai and Yaya are. They are both miracles. However, Mwai beats yaya there. He is in fact failing Off . They need active sweet blood. Good luck to our beautiful player, our pride.

    • That’s not miracle bro, this what they both deserve due to their talents. This not when a prophecy tells you to type Amen and promise you tomorrow you a rich. So understand bro
