Nyamilandu takes 4th term campaign to journalists with ‘Mapwevupwevu’: Malawi FA

In what was supposed to be a media interface first of its kind called by the Football Association of Malawi( FAM) the event turned into a beer party as participants to the meeting had little to talk than boozing and feasting – Mapwevupwevu. 

FAM offered the scribes unlimited Mapwevupwevu, some had made take away

After getting one-too-many at Chiwembe Technical Ground, some scribes billed the party as FAM president Mac Millan Walter Nyamilandu’s campaign bid for the fourth term and seeking media friendly relations.

FAM through its Chief Executive Officer  (CEO) Suzgo Nyirenda called for the meeting to discuss issues that hinders the development of the game in the country and map the way forward but the meeting had done a little on the much awaited discussions.

Journalists were first taught the structures of FAM  and the statues of the association which was amended and they were enlightened on the elections statues which talk about the nominations,  and number of delegates to the Annual General Meeting of the association

Nyirenda also highlighted on number of success which the Nyamilandu led FAM has managed to do over the years,

They included FIFA Goal projects, Installation of artificial turf at Chiwembe, purchase of land in Lilongwe, purchase of MDC Stadium, establishment of Chiwembe hotel, introduction of replica jersey business and other TV and broadcasting rights for commercial purposes.

But as a manifesto sounding achievements were being touted, organisers were serving journalists with beer and snacks which compromised their participation in the meeting.

One of the participants to the meeting McDonald Malema from Malawi Broadcasting Corporations (MBC) from Mzuzu, described the meeting as “useless” as it had not met its expectations.

Calvary Family Church Television and radio journalist Joshua Malango also said the meeting was staged to lure journalists into supporting the Nyamilandu regime.

“Much as we applaud them for calling this meeting which is first of its kind, I strongly feel we could have done much better than what we have done. This was a beer party and wasteful to FAM resources,” he said.

Reporters from Blantyre were given K7, 000 each as allowance for the beer party and reporters from Lilongwe and Mzuzu were given K26, 000 as their transport and allowance.

Water is a crook. He is becoming becoming creative. Imagine our women will join AFCON for women after so many years. Now he is throwing mapwevupwevu to hungry journos. All presidents do make sure that journos are given somthing home. For this president journos accepted everything from Mapwevupwevu to cash. Thus why even the head of this country do give you dinyero. Atola nkhani simwadya basi. By the way where did water take this money as we havent heard that he has sent a budget for that to government. This is corruption. President of his caliber, he was not supposed… Read more »

Munthu ndi ovuta, if they went there without being given food, they could have also complained that they were left without food, lets learn to appreciate things, we need to understand things with a positive prospective as compared to negative prospective

So Walter Nyamilandu is foolish like this when they are asking for companies to support them financially, they have all the monies to waste in parties of this magnitude? Oh, this is strange in a poor country like Malawi. Nobody think upright, I do not understand why? This is another stupidity of the highest order. Kodi since you started working with Illovo, don’t you have any other business apart from FAM President puzzle? Learn to invtest Malawians please. This is going to dilute his integrity and reputation forever. He is not the only man in Malawi and no man can… Read more »
