Nyamilandu 4th term bid at FA Malawi continues to draw criticism: Kanyenda says no more ‘coronation’

Former football administrator David Kanyenda, has described the  rising levels of aspirants for the post of Football Association of Malawi ( FAM) President, as  a reflection of football community’s lack of confidence in the incumbent Mac Millan Walter Nyamilandu.

Kanyenda:  It should be a contest not coronation

Kanyenda: It should be a contest not coronation

The former Mighty Be Forward Wanderers  secretary and a private practising lawyer, took to social media that the emergence of more candidates challenging Nyamilandu is an indictment to the affiliates rigid insistence on a fourth term stance on the FAM boss.

Nyamilandu has also come under personal fire by many football fans commenting on Nyasa Times, who accuses him of running FAM as a kingdom.

Kanyenda said if Nyamilandu had not achieved anything in 12 years, in all probability he won’t in the next four years.

“We must thank him for his contribution but he ought to pave way for a successor. Am glad Mr Nyamilandu faces more of an election than a mere coronation this time around,” said Kanyenda.

He said the availability of alternative candidates is a healthy development for  Malawi football administration.

Some of the aspirants who have joined the race are renowned banker Wilkins Mijiga, golfer and prominent private practice
lawyer John Gift Mwakhwawa, Allie Mwachande, Chikwawa United chairperson Owen Chomanika Owen Chomanika, Kelvin Mmangisa and goalkeeper legend Boniface Maganga.

Former footballers and administrators Henry Kaka Chibowa and Alick Tahuna have only been approached to stand.

Nyamilandu remains the firm favourite for the role as he has backing from the affiliates who are the voters.

Candidates are required to serve mainstream football in any capacity for at least five years going into an election.

    Please Nyasa Editor; you should have used a better picture for Kanyenda not this one which was taken at the graveyard when he was speaking during a funeral, or else the picture should have been cropped to remove unwanted material like the metal cross on the tombstone (close to his hands) where the details of the deceased can be seen! As for Nyamilandu I think he has overstayed there is need to change however the constitution is giving him the opportunity to stand again as it has the open term which favours life presidency! I believe there is need to review the Constitution. I know the affiliates that vote will still vote for Nyamiland not because they believe he will do anything better but they are so much intimidated by him that they can’t think of ushering him out!

    Thank you David. At last some sober reflection. Mr Nyamirandu please do the honorable thing. The “it is the people who want me” song does not fit your persona. Leave it to the politicians. Consider your legacy and your name. It’s worth much more than golf.
