Be Forward Wanderers pruned Mulanje West Constituency select 4-1 at Namulenga Football ground at Nkando in Mulanje in a friendly game which was organized by the member of parliament from the area Patricia Kaliati.
Fresh from their 3-0 defeat to Mafco FC the previous day, the Nomads vented their anger on the unfancied side with a changed line-up than the one that lost against soldiers.
In goals, the Nomads featured Nenani Juwayo, while upfront Jimmy Zakazaka partnered Khumbo Ng’ambi. Francisco Madinga and Felix Zulu operated from the wings, while Alfred Manyozo jnr and Ernest Tambe played on the centre.

Jimmy Zakazaka scored twice, while the other goals came from Khumbo Ng’ambi and Julius Kajembe.
There were light moments during the match, as member of parliament and former minister Patricia Kaliat took over the mantle to coach her side.
Jovial Kaliati could be seen on the touchline doing some pep talks to her players, “Tamakani asadutse Nyerere zikuchepa izi [tight markin plese, the Nomads are our match].”
Be Forward Wanderers sponsors from Japan also watched the game, and at the end of the game they presented some footballs to Mulanje Constituency select side.
In her remarks, Kaliati commended Be Forward Wanderers FC for honoring her invitation.
“We people from Mulanje West Constituency we do not take your visit for granted because you’re a big side and for allowing to play at a bumpy and dusty ground like this one, we appreciate,” said Kaliati, a woman of the people.
