Malawi’s flagship league governing body’s (Sulom) top brass are seeking to run during March elections.
Sulom President Innocent Bottomani, General Secretary Williams Banda and Treasurer have all indicated that they would seek re-election for another mandate saying his administration had managed to turn around the fortunes of the league.
He cited the improved working relationship with its affiliates and the country’s soccer governing body Football Association Malawi (FAM) as one of the positive changes his administration has made to the country.
“I have consulted the affiliates, teams, sports officials and my family who have encouraged me to stand again in the elections in March,” Bottomani said.
He also said his administration managed to address issues of hooliganism and acts of violence.
Treasurer Tiya Somba Banda also said under tutelage teams had managed to earn more from gate collections than before he took over.
He said the currently leadership had managed to fulfill the promise as indicated by the just ended season’s gross net of K400 million which is much higher than that of 2010 when it was K12 million.
“Before I was voted in power in 2010 there was a lot of gate collection syndicate rackets which we have managed to under control,” Somba said.
However, Botomani might be lured by the prospects of automatically ascending to the position of Football Association of Malawi (FAM) fourth Vice President as stipulated by Fifa.
