Nyirenda: In rare admission on juju

“This was regrettable. Malawi won the game yes but we could not have done that. This was the time I did not know Jesus, I was not spiritual,” said Nyirenda in a programme monitored on MBC radio one.

He said he was prompted to travel to Mulanje and spend a night in the famous charm district because DR Congo team brought their herbalists.

This is a rare admission on juju by a senior official at the football association.

Nyirenda also urged football players to complete their education as football career is always short.

“If FAM had its own national players, I could have done all what it takes so that they get first degrees, unfortunately these players are owned by clubs. It is always good to see players holding senior positions in companies. They should not rely on football alone because it is short-lived,” he said.

Nyirenda said his role model is his boss, Walter Nyamilandu saying he has excelled in life marvellously.

Nyamilandu who is a senior manager at Illovo Sugar is seeking a fourth term as president of FAM at the December 12 elections. He faces prominent marketer Wilkins Mijiga in a two horse race.

    Guit is surfacing kkkkkkkkk, a Nyirenda munadyapo zingati mutapanga juju? Kkkkkkk

  6. Suzgo Nyirenda i do not see the reason why you are feeling guilty, there is nothing wrong in using Juju, all what matters is where your faith is and as you are migrating to another class of faith from the other please do not negate or black paint the former because you also benefitted too

    Juju is part of life for a lot of Malawians graduate or no graduate. Let us not condemn and start throwing stones at Sudzgo, he has admitted his past mistakes, he is of free conscious. What he has not admitted is that did he use juju only for the national team or for himself as an individual as well. What he has not accounted for is the fact that how was this expenditure justified in the accounting process and reconciliation. Which reasonable justification did he use to get allowances to spend nights in Mulanje hunting for herbalists, which reasons in the accounting process did FAM use to pay a herbalist it was described as what other miscellenous expenditure. This is where FIFA money, Government money is abused. Did the herbalist give FAM receipts for services supplied? A Sudzgo and Walter time to go.

    Africans believe in wood in one way or another. Look at the guards some of us have. They are really old men who can hardly run but we sleep very comfortable in our houses knowing that they have charms. Bullets does it and so does Wanderers.

    When I was in primary school, Sports Masters used to go to look for charms for Mayor’s Trophy during the time Daud Sanudi Ishmael Milanzi, Aggrey Mtelera, Jones Napolo etc. Give FAM CEO a break. Palibe nkhani apa asaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

  23. Therere says:

  31. peter muthanyula says:

    With this admission, he MUST resign. This is rubbish. Disgraceful to FAM, Malawi and Football as a whole. And he himself is a Chanco graduate, koma kuganiza ngati munthu mbuli. Zamanyazi.
    Billy Mayaya and John Kapito, osamusiyasiya munthuyu. Demo ichitike basi.
    Resign! Resign! Resign! Resign!

  32. Rich CJ says:

    Now tell of people like Drogba, Ronadal what juju do they use? And where do they get that killing juju? That at the age of Drogba he can still be runing like a horse and perform wonders. What mr ceo could say is that all people who force football as a trade are those who use juju. There we could agree.

  33. fisher says:

    Hey this stuff is shit how come you use juju while we gat God of everything.why don’t you pray to him to grant you a win stupid fools that’s why nation team does not do better
    Learn to rely on him rather than the devils powers

    Indeed football is short lived urge this players to face studies
    If this nation is to prosper
