Malawi govt to censure FAM president Nyamilandu

Malawi government has summoned president of Football Association of Malawi (FAM), Mc Millan Walter Nyamilandu, to be carpeted for insinuating that government wishes the national football team bad by failing to support their recent preparations for the Mali game scheduled for Saturday.

Nyamilandu: To be quized

Nyamilandu was speaking at the sidelines of a ceremony where Airtel Malawi donated K10 million towards preparations for the game.

In an interview with Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) Nyamilandu said the help should serve as a bitter pill to those who do not wish the team well.

“Others thought we were going to fail just because they did not give us their help but God has proved them wrong as you can see,” said Nyamilandu in reference to government’s failure to come to the rescue of the team in good time.

Nyamilandu said Airtel bailed FAM out of “an embarrassment” and saved them form an “imminent crisis.”

Sports Minister, Grace Obama Chiumia, is the one who has called Nyamilandu to a meeting to express dissatisfaction over his remarks.

Malawi sit in third place in Group B, with matches against second-placed Mali at home in Blantyre Malawi are scheduled to host Mali on 15 November and travel to Ethiopia for their final match four days later and bottom side Ethiopia to come four days later.

Fifa says no govt interference which is good. Why cant fifa fund fam to ensure total independence then. In any case the Flames are useless let airtel etc fund these useless jokers.

There is no reason to summon this boy for telling you the truth, first things first, Jana doesn’t wish Water well, it has been a bad relationship thence bad recommendations. Govt has always come at a last minute when he, Jana knows what is involved. Grace you told us you will find money for the flames, where is the money.
