Barely a day after accepting to release Joseph Kamwendo on a 6-month loan to any Lilongwe based team, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers has decided to cancel all arrangements on the planned loan move following a meeting they had on Tuesday night.
Nomads executive met soon after hearing that Kamwendo was in his way to newly Super League promoted side, Masters Security Football club.
According to a statement released by Wanderers General Secretary Mike Butao, the executive felt the deal was not worth it hence the decision.
“Joseph requested loan move to Masters Security for 6 months and later changed it to 1 year. We took the matter to our executive who unanimously rejected.
“Our first duty as executive committee is to protect the interests of the club and we do not see any benefit for the club in this loan move.
” Masters is a small team and joseph will not learn anything of value there that will benefit us after his loan. If anything, his form will deteriorate. Joseph can only join Masters as General Secretary or Chairman, not a player,” read part of the statement.
Commenting on the decision , Butao said the club had already advised Joseph to apply for a compassionate leave instead.
The Nomads General Secretary also hinted that the club has been informed
that Masters had offered Joseph K6 million plus a minibus for a 1 year contract.
“We regard this as rumours and will therefore not act on this. Our decision is not based on this either. But if this is confirmed true, then we will slap Masters with player-tapping charges.
” There have been numerous advances on our players, especially from these small teams that are not yet conversant with football rules. We hope the administrators of these clubs will acquaint themselves with rules governing transfers quickly before somebody loses patience,” warned Butao.
Meanwhile, the social media is awash with a picture showing Joseph Kamwendo receiving a jersey from from Masters Security F.C, a development which patron of the club Alfred Gangata has denied.
