They triumphed in both football and netball, after seeing off LL Msozi South. In football, they won 3-0 whereas in netball, they won 22-4.
The games were graced by JBF director Edyth Akridge and his Jack Brewer Foundation counterpart, Jack Brewer, who donated 100 balls to the two constituencies.
“I was impressed by the level of competition and commitment displayed by the players,” said Brewer.
The competition’s manager Wyson Sumaili said considering time, the tournament will now be staged in a number of districts at the same time.
“We do not have much time as our target is to conclude by mid-May,” said Sumaili.
So far, the tournament has been played in Mwanza, Neno, Chikhwawa, Nsanje, Salima, Nkhotakota and Lilongwe.
