Kamuzu Barracks to miss stars Nkacha, Banda: Off to DRC on Malawi army duties .

Malawi football champions Kamuzu Barracks (KB) Football Club General Secretary Michael Chamayere has confirmed that the team will begin the TNM Super League title defence without two of their key players Harvey Nkacha and Dave Banda.

Dave Banda-to miss start of season

The two who apart from being players are also soldiers from the Malawi Defence Force (MDF) are reportedly heading to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on a Peace Keeping Mission.

But Chamayere in an interview with a local radio on Thursday said they will immediately look for their matching replacement.

“It is true that the two may be leaving but we will work out to bring in their replacements,” said the General Secretary.

He said they can use some of the prize money for TNM Super League title to purchase equally good players.

But Chamayere insisted they already have a strong and good squad and that changes will not be noticed.

The development comes when reports are also rife that Nkacha is badly wanted by a Mozambican top league side.

Club Team Manager Francis Nthukwa Shawa confirmed the news earlier this week and revealed MDF is looking into the matter.

Meanwhile, General Secretary Chamayere has assured K.B players that they will be rewarded handsomely for the job well done in winning the league title.

Kamuzu Barracks became the first ever team from the military in the history of Malawi to win the top flight Super League.

In UK and us, soldiers playing professional sports are, “transfered” to a non deployable sector of the army, if one is contributing to the country at national level leave them and let someone else take their other role, national duty comes in different forms, DRC is not asking their professional players overseas and internally to go and fight rebels!
