Super League of Malawi (Sulom) treasurer Tiya Somba Banda has come to rescue of Central Region Football Association (CRFA) secretariat when he donated a brand new laptop to the committee which sent an SOS last month.
The committee has appealed to well wishers to help them with computer for its secretariat office.
The association, which is the only region with a lot of teams in its league, has three divisions namely Premier League, Division One and Two with total of 60 teams.
It has been using note books to keep records of players, log table and fixtures were being sent to the media and teams through text messages and they were using Internet cafe.
Presenting the laptop, Somba Banda who is also acting Sulom secretary general, said he appreciates the great contributions central region league is making to football in the country.
He noted that central region teams that are promoted into the Super League hardly drop, which is a clear indication of how good is the Chipiku central region league.
“The vision we have as a country is to professionalise the game and we can only achieve that if we run our leagues professionally. Having accurate statistics is critical in managing football therefore this laptop is a springboard towards achieving the vision as it will help them to keep all vital information of the association in it,” Somba Banda said.
General Secretary of Centra Region Football Association, Bernard Chiwiruwiru Harawa ,said he was “so grateful” for the donation.
Harawa has since called on other well wishers to help them with some office furniture to completely have a whole secretarial set up as of now it’s only the laptop which they have received from Somba Banda.
