In scanty information, FAM announced that the Chikafa died on March 15.

Chikafa founded FAM in 1966 and his last appearance at a football event was in 2013 when the incumbent FAM president bestowed a lifetime achievement award during the association held in Salima.

He was awarded alongside renowned former Fifa referee and instructor Bestor Kalombo, Flames and Bullets FC Legend Kinnah Phiri and former long time serving member Andson Zimba.

But details regarding his funeral arrangement are yet to be released.

    Comment Typical of Malawi: always scanty with details real heroes and events. We put much emphasis on nonsense and non-event. He needs full details revealed. He could be the father of one of our past football greats Patrick and Robin. We should learn to appreciate real events and heros. May his soul rest in peace.

  25. Nyambitoni says:

    the month of March has been generally terrible, so many deaths. May his soul rest in peace. He has run his race to the finish!
