Fooball Association of Malawi (FAM) officials have banned three people who contested in last year’s top positions in the organization from participating in football activities in Malawi.
FAM general secretary Suzgo Nyirenda could neither confirm nor deny the story.
However credible sources at Fam told Nyasa Times that Wilkins Mijiga, Yabwanya and Tia Nsomba have been suspended from all football related activities as FAM president Walter Nyamilandu hits back at his critics and competitors.
“They have indeed been suspended, that is correct,” said one official who said he is yet to get details on the length of the suspension and why they have been suspended.
Mijiga, Yabwanya and Tia Nsomba obtained a court injunction against the holding of FAM elections last year alleging FAM did not provide a fair level ground for free and fair elections.
Later that day, the injunction was vacated, leading to resignations of senior FAM officials, Nyamilandu winning the elections and FIFA officials asking for stiff penalties for those who took football matters in courts of law.
Mijiga, Yabwanya and Nsomba said they have not yet received the decision in writing and would only comment after getting the FAM ruling.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
