Gunda, who rallied his support behind incumbent Walter Nyamilandu – seeking a fourth term – told Nyasa Times in an interview that he had “what it takes” to be part of the country’s main football steering body.

He said with the “requisite stamina, knowledge, and experience” in football related issues he would help in turning the fortunes of Malawi football around.

“I will contest because I feel I have a lot of new things to offer,” Gunda did not elaborate. He, however, said that he would soon be publishing his thoughts and strategies on Malawi football through various local media houses.

The United Kingdom trained sports administrator said that “strong” and “visionary” leaders were what Malawi football was “looking forward to.”

Gunda said Nyamilandu was supposed to “remain” at FAM for the good of “Malawi football.”

Apparently, Gunda revealed, NRFL is behind Nyamilandu; so are Central and Southern Football Leagues.

Alfred Gift Gunda holds a Master of Science in Sports Management and Administration from the United Kingdom, and currently works as Assistant Registrar for Academics and Students Affairs at Mzuzu University.

He has for a long time been involved in sports activities in the country including the administration of the Simama Football League, northern region top-flight football endeavor in the north.

During the polls Nyamilandu will battle it against administrator Owen Chomanika, marketer Wilkins Mijinga, lawyer John Gift Mwakhwawa and former Bullets official Ali Mwachande.

Former Lilongwe City Council (LCC) chief executive council withdrew Kelvin M’mangisa withdrew his candidature on Monday alleging “the play field was not levelLed” and that the “elections were favoUring one candidate” – apparently referring to Nyamilandu.
