The association has since notified the body’s electoral body, affiliates, Malawi Electoral Commission who will conduct the polls.

The association has since called upon individuals interested to run to submit their nominations before 16 December.

Gunda, who was the executive member assumed the higher office of the secretariat after Nyirenda secured a job at Confederation of Southern Africa Football Associations (Cosafa) as Deputy Chief Executive Officer.
