Bullets have also added Lloyd Nkhwazi to Ramadhan’s backroom staff.

According to Bullets’ general secretary Harold Fote, they have demoted Kananji due to some coaching qualification hitches pertaining to the requirements in the CAF Championships.

“Kananji has no CAF coaching licence to be used during the CAF Championship,” said Fote.

However, Nkhwazi has the CAF licences but was overlooked ahead of Burundian tactician Ramadhan, ho won Bullets three league titles between 1997 and 2001.

Fote said promoting Nkhwazi “could be perceived as demeaning Kananji, his boss in the previous technical panel. We have, therefore, opted for Ramadhan as head coach to avoid the conflict that could possibly ensue.”

According to Fote, Ramadhan and Nkhwazi will be allowed to be on the touchline during Bullets’ games in the continental showpiece as per the requirements in CAF competitions.

My advice is, Mr Kananji, you are worth the salt. I admire you and your record is the best so far by Malawi std. Just go for the papers and I know you can make it.

Kananji has been treated badly due to these caf requirements,therefore he just join Kau Kau since they do not have a coach as of now.

That is the way God promotes people, by way of humbling them first and then to their glory. That should be a learning process for Kananji. The time he will be deputising Rhamadan he can explore ways of acquiring the required qualifications.


Everywhere papers are important not experience.


That’s it, no problem as long he is @ Bullets
