Nyamilandu had earlier indicated that he will not seek a fourth term in charge of Malawi football but has performed a dramatic U-turn after affiliates said they want him to continue being FAM president.

The FAM president has confirmed that he is considering seeking re-election after being urged by Central, Southern and Northern regions football associations plus the National Youth Football Committee (NFYC) and National Coaches Association (NRC) are some of the FAM affiliates.

“I will stand. I am ready and motivated to go for another term,” declared Nyamilandu.

The FAM president said he has taken a huge amount of thought to consider seeking another term after being backed by affiliates.

“It means they have confidence in my ability,” added Nyamilandu.

NFYC president Mabvuto Missi and Super league of Malawi (Sulom) treasurer Tiya Somba-Banda, who also speaks for the body, say they have no problems with Nyamilandu seeking re-election.

Central Region Football Association (CRFA) general secretary Bernard Harawa and Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) chairperson Raphael Humba have also confirmed that their respective associations have approached Nyamilandu to stand again.

This media stunt was expected.Nyamilandu is overdue since 2010. This is not personal but there is a need to change leadership for the sake of upgrading national soccer development

mwatikwana bwana Nyamilandu.

You have messed up a lot of things including excessive failure of the Flames, let alone monetary embezzlements.

If you insist, we will reveal your secret dealings against the mighty DPP prior to 2014 elections.

Walter my advice to you is that like your brother in arms Sepp Blatter, leave before people start grumbling. You have done your part and history will judge if you were good or not. This ndiimaso syndrome if not good for the development of the game brother. May I remind you of those juicy promises you made, the yardstick for the Flames and what have we achieved. Follow Sepp and leave before you are shoved.

There is no way that all the affiliates can backing Nyamilandi’s candidature. This man must go. December kwatalikanso. Nobody will miss his services. He is a failure. Too nepotistic.
