AS Vita had a‘12th vocal player’ against Wanderers

In coincidental and ironic circumstances, Democratic Republic of Congo’s AS Vita, had 1000 supporters of Congolese origin but based in Malawi who were more vocal and vibrant than thousands of Malawians who were behind Be Forward Wanderers in the return leg of CAF Club Championship tourney at Bingu National Stadium on Wednesday

Nomads fun could not silence the DRC vocal support 

MBC’s veteran football commentator, Patrick Simango, was quick to observe that the Congolese supporters were outplaying Malawians supporters when he asked Foster Maulidi on the touch line to comment on the matter.

Yes, the Congolese side was in a foreign land but enjoying more support than the home team which had thousands and thousands of supporters. This gave them morale to enjoy their game as if they are back in Kinshasa. They won the game by two goals to one in the end.

These are people who came into this country as refugees and are based at Dzaleka in Dowa. They organized themselves and got themselves ferried to Bingu National Stadium just for one purpose; to support a team from home.

Malawians football fans can learn something from these Congolese. They should learn to be vocal as they rally behind their clubs including the national team even if it is trailing either on aggregate from the result of a first leg tie or even in a fresh game.

Wanderers’ captain, Joseph Shakira Kamwendo, conceded the fact that Vita was far much better than Wanderers in the competition, adding that his side was not good enough. Wanderers’ coach of the day, Bob Mpinganjira, said lessons learnt in the competition will help his side to do better in the domestic league.

Talking about Masters Security’s goalless draw against the Angolan side on Tuesday, one would say they too, will be stronger in the domestic league this forthcoming season as compared to last season.

After fighting relegation last season as debutants, they wore a brave face to go ahead and compete at continental level. They are out but one would still say “Bravo Masters Security!”

Something is wrong here, what are these people doing here, Malawi govt please send these people to their respective homes.


BRAVO NOMADS, BRAVO MASTERS, YOU have both lost miserably but you were brave enough to compete. other teams might be making fun of you yes, but I urge you to fight hard to compete again and again until you perfect and gain exposure on the international stage.
Malawi football is still a long way to match other leagues hence participating in these international competitions will take our football to another lever.


Nkhani ili apa ndi ya mpira osati ndale. Tiyeni tivomere AS Vita ndi club yayikulu. Let’s be realistic don’t attack political parties here

If truth be told palibepo chomwe chikuyenda dziko lino ndi nthawi yanu yakuba ya DPP iyi!!! Muzingodzikwata maliseche nokha chonchi ngati zenizeni. The real yardstick of our performance (mediocrity) becomes clear with such international competitions. Pomwe tili ndithu.
