By A Correspondent| Based on the same news report that Netball President, Leticia Chipandu in an interview on Sunday dismissed as false, the Netball Team yesterday afternoon received a donation of training equipment from a British donor.
This was in response to the same news report by the British Telegraph which Leticia Chipandu said was false. The Telegraph’s report quotes the Zim coach Lloyd Makunde saying he has only £30 in his hands for the whole team and wants to purchase training equipment, and that paltry £30 is from his own pocket.
Thousands of donated funds were squandered on airfares and allowances for government officials leading he Netball team struggling for basics like food, and an official government audit shows that the fund was already short by $39,000 (alone) by the time of leaving Zimbabwe earlier in July.
Leticia Chipandu was asked to provide answers on these and other matters yesterday afternoon. She was also asked to explain why she refused to provide ankle support shoes as requested by the players. Even as late as yesterday, she told ZimEye’s Simba Chikanza, “the Asics shoes are not necessary.”
