“This was regrettable. Malawi won the game yes but we could not have done that. This was the time I did not know Jesus, I was not spiritual,” said Nyirenda in a programme monitored on MBC radio one.

He said he was prompted to travel to Mulanje and spend a night in the famous charm district because DR Congo team brought their herbalists.

This is a rare admission on juju by a senior official at the football association.

Nyirenda also urged football players to complete their education as football career is always short.

“If FAM had its own national players, I could have done all what it takes so that they get first degrees, unfortunately these players are owned by clubs. It is always good to see players holding senior positions in companies. They should not rely on football alone because it is short-lived,” he said.

Nyirenda said his role model is his boss, Walter Nyamilandu saying he has excelled in life marvellously.

Nyamilandu who is a senior manager at Illovo Sugar is seeking a fourth term as president of FAM at the December 12 elections. He faces prominent marketer Wilkins Mijiga in a two horse race.

Pseudo code(the devil incarnate)

Suzgo Nyirenda i do not see the reason why you are feeling guilty, there is nothing wrong in using Juju, all what matters is where your faith is and as you are migrating to another class of faith from the other please do not negate or black paint the former because you also benefitted too

You did and done well, thanks you are a God fearing man now, and thanks for the advise to our players who don’t think deep on education. May God bless you.
