Chomanika: Aspired for FAM presidency

Chomanika, who is accountant and holds MBA promises in his manifesto to establish basketball funding for football, hosting Cosafa Cup, a code of conduct, financial grants to all regional associations and aligning football with community projects.

“I represent a leadership that will enhance the strategic development of FAM,” Chomanika states in his manifesto titled ‘Making Football Happen, adapt, adopt and progress.’

He added: “Accountability and stakeholders framework will be made clear and sustained clear. FA shall do its business without fear or favour, familiarity or laxity. This professionalization shall be tailor-made to suit our national status.”

The ambitious administrator, who managed to lead Chikwawa United to Malawi’s top country league said he would fight to make Malawi a respectable footballing nation.

“I shall lead an FA that shall continue tom pursue and find relevance in this pledge of making Malawi a respected football nation within the continent of Africa and reinforce its dominance within the Cosafa region,” Chomanika states.

“I intend to lead a national soccer marketing cascade through soccer symposia where the government and corporate world and members of the public will be bi-annually invited to reflect on the status and aspirations of our football,” he continued.

But Chomanika will have to prove that he has the ability to pressure at high level of football administration.

His failure to sustain Chikwawa United after a colourful dream to make the team commercially viable will have a negative impact on his bid.

Chomanika has decided to declare his interest after incumbent President Walter Nyamilandu announced his intention to retire from football  administration at the end of this term.

However his silence over the announcement recently has already sparked off a debate that he would go for another term.

    Owen let me tell you, you will never make it. You are a bad planner for elections of this caliber. You are saying you are an accountant yet you look like a Group four security corporal. Why dressing like an engineer in Tea estate. Thirdly you are very young in twenties. We can not hire you. do not spend your me agree resources over this. Finally you did not make any impact for Chikwawa FC. What more with the flames? Your appearnce show that you an accountant by qualifications not working. If you are working as an accountant then I am alfraid, which company are you serving as an accountant? Your qualification and professionalism could have made a difference in your life not the way you are looking.Next time use your photo that will market itself for you. Every face tells the story.Again you have not narrated any story about you on the football pitch apart from driving a sinking titanic CFC.Walter Nyamilandu did a lot dispite that I am not convinced with his achievement for the terms he has led Malawian football.Walter Nyaminyami has not achieved a lot at all.
