She added that Malawians need to support Mutharika in his role as Global champions for the youth in order to help them realize their dreams and inspirations.

“The President has always encouraged us to keep trying things in order to excel. Everything is possible and it worth trying to do it,” the Minister said.

Government has constructed stadiums in Mulanje, Mangochi, Kasungu, Rumphi, Karonga while in Ntcheu and Zomba the construction of their stadiums is in progress.

The stadiums have hosted TNM Super League and Cup matches where residents have been able to sample the country’s football cream from their home yard.

The country has Bingu, Civo, Silver stadiums and Nankhaka ground in Lilongwe, in Blantyre there is Kamuzu stadium and Chiwembe ground and Mzuzu stadium in Mzuzu.

Copycat from what Chilima said about developing football by sending young Malawian players to European clubs after developing them locally. This man doesn’t have original ideas to help the country. All this time he had the opportunity to develop sport through sporting associations but he was busy sharing Malawi’s limited wealth with his party friends and now that he needs votes,he is even saying things that he knows he can’t accomplish. Mutharika is not a sporting person, Chilima is.

You promised similar things in 2014 and in this year 2019 we can see that you have failed. You just have to go

Achiswe.

There are much greater priorities, Mr President. First things first, please. We need medicine, decent housing, clean water, uninterrupted power supply, good basic education, food availability, etc etc. Sports academies may promote better sportsmen and women, but they don’t win elections!

With all due respect, this man said “I will develop Malawi to European and American levels”. So why does he now wants to send Malawians to Europe and rest of the world? What happened to the development master plan? Why contradiction? Vote, vote, vote !
