Mwachande: Enters race for Football Assciation of Malawi presidency

FAM elections are scheduled for this December.

Incumbent FAM president Walter Nyamilandu is standing for a fourth term despite growing opposition to his presidency from the soccer fraternity as many fell he can no longer be the face of a modernisation operation for a new FAM .

Nyamilandu has the backing of affiliates, who are his cronies.

But Mwachande who has been working with Malawi Olympic Committee (Moc) in the last few years to promote sports and managed to secure $20,000 (K8.5 million) sponsorship from a Kenyan-based organisation, Cuaha, to run a football competition in Balaka, feels FAM leadership it’s something he wants to do and give people an alternative .

“I care about football, it is time for a change,” Mwachande told Nyasa Times.

He pointed out that the country’s football is currently being run in “an amateur level.”

He said: “Football has to be run as a business therefore; there is need for serious investment. Currently, our football is run at an amateur level.”

The 35-year-old Mwachande said he will seek sponsorship for district leagues, saying they are crucial for developing grassroots talent.

Mwachande said he will unveil his full manifesto after consultations with the affiliates.
