Speaking in a post-match interview, Civo Coach Abus Makawa said he was pleased with the result while admitting it was not an easy match.

Makawa further added that Malawi National Council of Sports’ (MNCS) initial suspension of matches due to the Cyclone Freddy tragedy affected the players’ preparations.

Makawa’s opposite, Moyale’s John Chimwala, was displeased with his team’s outing, but remained hopeful that his young squad will improve.

He also concurred with Makawa that although the players played the match, the suspension letter from MNCS affected them mentally.

On Friday evening, MNCS, through a statement signed by Chairperson Sunduzwayo Madise, said all affiliated sports associations should notice suspension of activities over the weekend, following President Lazarus Chakwera’s declaration of a State of Disaster and 14 days of mourning.

However, after discussions, MNCS approved women’s games scheduled for Saturday in Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu to proceed.
