Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has committed to process permanent work permit for Burundian hired as Malawi national football team assistant coach Nsazwirwimo Ramadhan.
FAM President Mac Millan Walter Nyamilandu said the Bullets coach, who was offered a temporary work permit amidst threats of deportation, would be required to travel countrywide in talent scouting mission.
“We are going to facilitate the processing of permanent work permit for Ramadhan because now that he is assistant coach for Malawi, he will be required to go for scouting mission,” Nyamilandu said.
The Burundian was unveiled national team assistant coach on 31 July after coming second to the Flames legend Ernest Mtawali following interviews which Mighty Be Forward Wanderer development officer Eddington Ng’onamo and former Bullets coach Gilbert Chirwa attended.
Bullets processed a temporary work permit to allow him work for six months at the club.
He spent a good part of the first round of the season working behind the scenes as he was not illegible to work on the touchline.
Meanwhile, Bullets FC have said they will not block the coach from joining the national team.
“We had foreseen this development the moment he was shortlisted for interviews. We cannot block him because that is even good news to us,” said Bullets Vice General Secretary Kelvin Moyo.
“We wish him all the best as for his new challenges at the national team.”
