Suzgo Nyirenda : Yabwanya says he is not fit for purpose in new football development

Yabwanya, the Karonga United owner, told Times TV that he will have “serious problems” working with Nyirenda if he wins the election.

“He  [Nyirenda] has shown serious traits of bias towards the incumbent [Walter Nyamilandu] and that is lacking in as far as the the role of General Secretary is concerned,” the Canadian based FAM presidential hopeful said in an interview on Times TV with Brian Banda.

“ I will have problems working with him if I succeed. We will cross the bridge when we get there,” he added.

His comments come amidst reports of FIFA World cup complimentary tickets scandal where FAM bosses are reportedly to have sold Malawi’s tickets allocation on the black market in Mozambique.

FIFA issues complimentary tickets to FIFA executive members, Sub-committee members, Confederation members and FA presidents.

The complimentary tickets are for the use of the FIFA members, sponsors in their various countries, Government officials because of the funding that most members get from Governments.

FIFA 2014 Brazil complimentary tickets were issued to FA presidents in South Africa, Johannesburg during the FIFA Seminar prior to the 64th FIFA congress in Rio de Janeiro in April 2014.

We can reveal that the FA presidents of Mozambique and Malawi , Walter Nyamilandu  were among those who received 15 complimentary tickets but they never got to the intended people.

Nyasa Times impeccable sources said the Nyamilandu led  FAM  sold the tickets on the black market in Mozambique through an agent called Michel.

“You can check with State House those who were there during the 2014 FIFA World cup if they got the complimentary tickets, they will tell you none got the tickets, it is because these tickets were sold in Mozambique,” said our source.

FAM bosses are said to have met Michel to sell their tickets on black market in order to fetch high returns. Michel offered each association a return of 150% above the market rate.

I am puzzled by the level of attacks directed at Yabwanya. Make no mistake, football is manufactured in Karonga, check the statistics and you will see that the district has produced a lot of good players for the national team.
