Mighty Wanderers FC has been handed a k300, 000 fine and ordered to stop using midfielder Abraham Kamwendo until they finalize discussions with his former club.
Blantyre United complained to Super League of Malawi (Sulom) accusing the Nomads for illegally using Kamwendo in their game against Silver Strikers.
The club argued that they loaned Kamwendo to Wanderers on a year and that the Nomads were supposed to buy him before the 2014 season.
Blantyre United technical director Lawson Nakoma said the Nomads breached the agreement.
In its verdict, which was signed by Sulom general secretary William Banda, Wanderers have been ordered to stop using Kamwendo until they finalise the deal with United “as per rules and regulations.”
Sulom has also demanded the Nomads to pay a fine of MK300, 000.00 before their next competitive game.
“Kindly note that failure shall lead to deduction of 3 points per game until such a time you will honour the payment.”
The Nomads next game is on Sunday against Blantyre United at Nchalo.
Meanwhile, Nomads vice-general secretary Chris Kananji has disclosed that their legend and former coach Kannock Munde will take charge of the team temporarily.
Munde, who has been appointed team manager, as the club await the return of Gerald Phiri Snr who is currently with the Under-20 national soccer team in Botswana for Friday’s CAF Youth Championship qualifier.
Stuart Mbolembole resigned as coach on Saturday following the 0-2 loss to Silver Strikers in the opening TNM Super League match.
Mbolembole’s backroom staff including Albert Mpinganjira as assistant coach, Chiyembekezo Zidana as team manager and Vales Kamzere as assistant team manager were all axed.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
