Malawi government has summoned president of Football Association of Malawi (FAM), Mc Millan Walter Nyamilandu, to be carpeted for insinuating that government wishes the national football team bad by failing to support their recent preparations for the Mali game scheduled for Saturday.
Nyamilandu was speaking at the sidelines of a ceremony where Airtel Malawi donated K10 million towards preparations for the game.
In an interview with Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) Nyamilandu said the help should serve as a bitter pill to those who do not wish the team well.
“Others thought we were going to fail just because they did not give us their help but God has proved them wrong as you can see,” said Nyamilandu in reference to government’s failure to come to the rescue of the team in good time.
Nyamilandu said Airtel bailed FAM out of “an embarrassment” and saved them form an “imminent crisis.”
Sports Minister, Grace Obama Chiumia, is the one who has called Nyamilandu to a meeting to express dissatisfaction over his remarks.
