Mighty Wanderers Football club supporters and players have joined hands in calling for the removal of the club’s secretary David Kanyenda accusing him of lacking dedication to the club and creating acrimony between the team and fellow clubs even the stakeholders.
The development comes barely few days after the Nomads alias ‘Nyerere’ were knocked
out of the K20 million Carlsberg Cup by Blue Eagles by a 3-2 goal margin.
According to one of the senior Wanderers Central Region supporters Kim Kamau, Kanyenda deserve to be fired for his “foul-mouth”.
Kamau told Nyasa Timesthat Kanyenda has been making a lot of regrettable statements which are also criminal in nature.
He cited an example of the remarks Kanyenda made inside Mpira ku Malawi programme weeks ago declaring that some of the people who killed the late polytechnic student Robert Chasowa are from the Bullets family.
Kamau said instead of coming up with a commercial drive that can attract the attention of their current sponsors Carlsberg Malawi to offer them full time sponsorship he is busy attacking and producing hate speeches.
“Our rivals [Bullets] through their Secretary Higger Mkandawire have been organizing several activities engaging the sponsors while our GS is just good at talking bad of others,” said Kamau.
He claimed that all the Nomads fans from the central region joined by northerners and southerners are not happy with Kanyenda’s hate speeches.
“He has to go because he wants to divide our club; how can the whole GS go live on radio and say Wanderers is for people from the south? He is a stranger into our family no wonder he is failing to commit himself to the team” Kamau said.
Kamau who was speaking on behalf of Central Region supporters said he was also saddened to hear that Kanyenda is milking the club.
The concerned supporter also accused Kanyenda of failing to safeguard the welfare of players.
The defeat to Blue Eagles has exposed deep rooted divisions in Nomads camp.
Some players are reported to have planned to lose the game against issues because some of the players were given more money from the Standard Bank prize money in which the players shared K4 million from the K7 million won.
However, Kanyenda has refused to step down from his post accusing Lilongwe fans of not being genuine supporters and that they don’t help the team.
“I am here to stay and I am not afraid of anything. If it is politics they want am ready and I will deal with them but if it is an issue of building our team let’s work together,” he said in an interview with MIJ radio.
When Nyasa Times called Kanyenda to seek his views, he said he was in a meeting and another attempt to talk to him as we went to press proved futile.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
