Mvula to join Malawi FA presidential race: Nyamilandu’s 4th term bid faces more challengers

Former Mighty Wanderers now Be Forward Wanderers chairperson Humphrey Mvula is the new figure to challenge Mac Millan Walter Nyamilandu for the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) presidency seeking to bring soccer’s governing body back to normal.

Mvula is expected to make official his bid but is reportedly engaging several stakeholders in trying to bring more investors into Malawian football.

He recently argued that government’s lack of funds should be no excuse for failing to engage an expatriate national coach and suggested that bilateral partners can assist.

Apparently, it is reported that Mvula is seeking Germany support to send an expatriate Flames coach for technical aid.

“The other option is taking out a budget to sponsors to explore the possibility of them paying coaches. They should not be constrained by money. The idea of looking for a coach is not difficult. It is just that we have not cast the net wider. In Zambia, Herve Renard was being paid by a mining company,” Mvula told the local press.

FAM president Nyamilandu whose fourth term bid is getting unpopular amongst the general football community in Malawi insisted that the suggestion to seek technical aid is good but they expect the ministry of sports to “champion the cause because they have a relationship with donor partners.”

He however agreed that the suggestion by Mvula is plausible: “This is how Manfred Hoener was recruited.”

Apart from Mvula, Nyamilandu is facing challenge from golfer and prominent lawyer John Gift Mwakhwawa, Owen Chomanika, Ali Mwachande, goalkeeper legend Boniface Maganga, Kelvin M’mangisa and Wilkins Mijiga.

Nyamilandu is viewed as the overwhelming favourite to win and other candidates face eligibility pitfalls

According to FAM legal subcommittee chairperson Jabbar Alide, candidates must have served in mainstream football administration at FAM affiliate level for five consecutive years prior to elections to stand as a requirement stipulated in FAM constitution.

Eligible voters will be 36 FAM affiliates who are; Super League of Malawi (Sulom), Southern Region Football Association (SRFA), Central Region Football Association (CRFA), Northern Region Football Association (NRFA), Beach Soccer, Womens Football Association, National Referees Association (NRA) and Youth Football Development are the affiliates that will be allowed to vote.

Sulom will have 8 votes, SRFA, CRFA and NRFA will have 6 votes each whereas the remaining votes will be given to the other affiliates.  Nine affiliates will contribute three delegates each to the elections. Simple majority determines winner after secret ballot voting.

Football fans want an open and public debate about the future of FAM.

FAM has an open ended term of office whose requirements include possession of five years of recent past main stream affiliate football administration experience.
