He will coach the Queens alongside Blue Eagles Sisters coach Samuel Kanyenda as his assistant.

The Netball Association of Malawi has offered the Kukoma Diamonds mentor a three month contract to take Queens to a fly with effect from 20th of September this year.

General secretary for Netball Association of Malawi (NAM) Carlo Bapu said after scrutinising the certificates of those who applied for the post, Saenda’s particulars satisfied NAM.

“We just ask him to work hard, he should take the Queens to a better position because this means NAM has entrusted him,” said Bapu.

In his words, Saenda said he has welcomed the task that he has been offered and promised to work extra hard since this is a national task not his own.

“I have welcomed the task on me and to get the Queens back into world’s top five is what I am prioritising now,” he said.

Saenda was once technical director for the Queens in 2013. The immediate task of the coaches will be the Fast5 world netball series in Australia next month.
