The members of the three committees who were proposed during FAM first executive committee meeting in January were yet to be approved by the general assembly as FAM’s constitution.

Delegates questioned the composition of Disciplinary committee which it comprises of people of legal background  and wondered if it was deliberate and if the appointees were in knowledge of football rules.

But reaction to the query,  FAM executive member who head legal committee, Jabar Alide clarified that it has been like that all the past 10 years where the committee have had lawyers as members  and that the general perception is that lawyers are much aware and can rule in any wrangles of any field including football.

Apart from that the appointees were also football fanatics who have served in other football committees before.

Alide clarified that Disciplinary committee functions are governed by the statues or disciplinary code of FAM which Complies with the FIFA disciplinary code while Ethics Committee shall deal with everything relating to Ethics in football and promotion of fair play.

    Who will track THE COST TO THE MALAWI TAX-PAYER of this ‘new experiment’ after Walter Nyamilandu’s engaging Ian Riley – another ‘marketing expert’?

    Can the FAM ‘president’ go out to Corporate Malawi – INCLUDING his employer Illovo Sugar (Malawi) Limited – and get all the financing for these committees? Or will this be added to the gigantic cost of his worthless ‘leadership’?

    Malawi Football needs INNOVATION and INCENTIVES to Develop and become Self-Financing to show Sponsors and Advertisers this is AN INDUSTRY TO PARTNER with.

    Can Nyasa Times please document the progress of Ian Riley starting with Day 1 to Day 100. I know he will fail. But it is time Walter Nyamilandu was given the bills to pay for his numerous failures.
