Bullets coaches’ contract runs out: Malawi champions to engage new tacticians

Malawi top league TNM Super League champions Big Bullets have dropped a bombshell by announcing that the tenure for the coaches contract has run out after leading the People’s Team to their first title in nine years.

The team also completed a double after earlier winning the Carlsberg Cup.

Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote said coach Elia Kananji, his assistants Mabvuto Lungu, Lloyd Nkhwazi, Swadick Sanudi, team manager Fundi Akidu and Technical Director Billy Tewesa the panel was hired on a season long deal should reapply to be considered for a new term of office.

Fote said their contract expired on December 6, the last day the team wrapped up the season against Blantyre United in which they won 3-0 at Kamuzu Stadium.

“We salute Kananji and his backroom staff for a job well done but their tenure has come to an end. If they are interested to continue, they will have to reapply,” Fote said.

The development comes while Kananji is with the Malawi Under-17 national team in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe at the Africa Union Region Five Games.

The executive has also disclosed that the temporary contract of Burundian coach Nsanzarwimo Ramadhan with the team has also run out.

Ramadhan based in South Africa was engaged on October 1 for an initial one-month deal but extended it to see off the team’s season campaign.

He said the executive would determine whether it was necessary to have him back.

In a related development FAM has disclosed that Bullets should have coaches with Caf coaching qualifications if they still harbor the ambition of playing in the Caf tournament.
