During Dr. Banda’s time such problems were solved by himself thus why we had had Kamuzu Cup those days. Why can’t the guy so-called Peter do the same?

Who breached the deal between TNM and FAM/SULOM? It shows our way of doing things still leaves a lot to be desired. FAM/SULOM you should know that you are there to promote football not your own private needs. It pains most that Malawi at 53 years of independence we are still swaying in triple digits in as far as FIFA ranking is concerned. Shame on you guys
