Ex-Malawi coach Kinnah to get Botswana club job

Former Malawi national football team coach Kinnah Phiri is set for a new lease of life in Botswana with reports linking him to a top league side Mochudi Centre Chiefs.

Kinnah: Botswana is calling

According to Phiri, who parted ways with Tanzania top league side Mbeya City Council, he was contacted by Chiefs last month.

The 62-year-old has held talks with the club on becoming their new tactician.

Ironically the Malawi football legend who left Mbeya midway through his three-year contract over contractual and payment disputes, could take over from his predecessor Bongani Mafu who also left the team due to disagreement over payment.

The club are currently without a head coach after departure of Bongani Mafu. Mogosi started the 2017/18 season under Innocent Morapedi and Pontso Moloi who have so far collected two points and are still trying to build a squad.

Kinnah, who is former Nyasa Big Bullets player and coach, led Malawi national football team to their first Africa Cup of Nations in 2010 after 26 years.

He also inspired Bullets to the group Caf Confederation Club stages and coached South Africa top league side Free State Stars on two occasions.

The Malawi football legend has also a long coaching career in Swaziland where he saw off his glittering playing career.

All the best Kinnah


My man! with your decorated talent i know sungafe ndi njala. Go and shine in botswana baba, Bullets yachedwa kukuchita approach. I really wished you could coach Bullets, i know you love that team and is in your blood. I LOVE KINNAH, I LOVE BULLETS.


he should brace himself for months without pay. Magosi are in deep financial troubles with no sponsor at all and coaches and players stay for months without pay. no wonder Zimbabwean Mafu dumped the team.


All the best our soccer legend Kinnah. We are proud of your achievements.
