Kafoteka got injured after sustaining an open fracture during the East and Central Africa Senior Challenge Cup held in Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania.

He said he withdrew the lawsuit after FAM General Secretary assured him that they would sort him out.

The former Escom United midfielder-turned defender disclosed that he has filed a lawsuit after paying K400,000 to meet costs of medical bill for a fracture injury he sustained in Tanzania.

“I have consulted my lawyers to file for a lawsuit because FAM has not honoured their promise that they will sort me,” Kafoteka said.

He sustained an open fractured injury which affected his career.

Kafoteka attempted to revive his career at Mighty Wanderers but failed to secure a place after the recurring of the injury.

The outspoken player finished his career at Moyale Barracks and has also joined Malawi Defence Force as soldier.

Malawi National Council of Sports also said it would not entertain Kafoteka’s complaint because he sustained the injury before enforced the insurance policy of national team players for all the disciplines.

This reminds me of a song by Edgar and Davis, Mmamawa galu, madzulo gona apa. If I was a footballer I would never ever represent Malawi national team. We need these people to play for us but when they got injured we dump them. Even Maxwel Chirwa was treated like this. Now my advice to the players is when they have the ball and an opponent is coming for a tackle, they must leave the ball to prevent an injury.
